Political Survey

In this survey, you are asked to give your opinion of a set of statements characterising political views. Please rate each statement on the scale given, which runs from "strongly disagree" to "strongly agree".


For statistical purposes, please tell us where you live:

The following are a set of propositions. Tell us whether you agree with them, as they would apply to the country where you live.

National law should always override international agreements.

We should maintain the right to free expression, even if some people use it to create trouble.

A person's social status shouldn't depend on who their parents are.

Religious faith needn't be based on the literal word of God.

Overall, economic migrants bring benefits to our country.

Correct grammar doesn't matter.

Sometimes children shouldn't obey their parents.

Anybody who wants top-quality health care should expect to have to pay for it.

Drivers should pay enough tax to cover the cost of environmental damage caused by motor transport, even if that would price some people off the roads.

Sometimes interest rates should be raised to reduce inflation, even if doing so would cause a large number of job losses.

Cutting taxes can't ever increase government revenue.

Sometimes the only way to make a legitimate point of view heard is to break the law.

Economic globalisation will increase inequality.

There are some ethnic groups who can never be fully integrated into our society.

Sometimes civilians are a legitimate military target.
