Americans Don’t See Violence Against Women Crisis, Don’t Blame ‘White Culture’

Americans see violence against women as less of a problem here compared to most other nations and don’t agree with former Vice President Joe Biden’s recent statement that “a white man’s culture” encourages such violence.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 55% of American Adults think there is less violence against women in America compared to most other countries in the world. Just 17% say there is more violence here, while 16% rate the level of violence against women as about the same as in other countries. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure.
