WILL PUBLIC DEFEND INTERNET AGAINST GOVERNMENT ATTACK?

RASMUSSEN REPORTS Nearly half of Americans (49%) believe that the federal government should regulate the Internet the same way it does radio and television, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national survey. Thirty-five percent (35%) disagree, and 16% are undecided. . .

Nearly one out of two adults (48%) say they use the Internet every day or almost every day, but 25% say they rarely, if ever, use it. Income is clearly a factor, with the likelihood of Internet usage rising with the level of the respondent’s annual earnings.

Race also is a factor, with 53% of whites saying they use the Internet every day or nearly every day, as opposed to only 28% of blacks. Twenty-one percent (21%) of whites and 39% of blacks say they rarely or never use the Internet.
