• are very patriotic.
• consider preventing terrorism a very important foreign policy goal.
• believe cloning humans would be morally wrong.
• think society should ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to succeed.
• think it’s important to get more than a high school education.
• believe it’s their duty to always vote.
• find birth control morally acceptable.
• admire those who get rich by working hard.
• believe it’s wrong for married people to have affairs.
• favor teaching sex education in public schools.
