Only one-third of Americans have a valid US passport

Only a third of American adults say they have a valid and unexpired U.S. passport (37%) – about the same percentage as those who have never had a passport at all (38%). Another one in five Americans (20%) have an expired or invalid passport.

A recent Economist/YouGov poll doesn’t show any party gap on this question, as Democrats (41%) and Republicans (38%) are equally likely to hold and not hold valid passports. But there are economic and regional divides on who is able to travel outside the United States. Source: YouGov

Would You Rather...?

How about some thinkers to cleanse the palate? Enjoy!

  • See the UK legalize recreational marijuana or see the monarchy abolished?

  • You've been chosen prime minister. On your first day, The Daily Mail runs a salacious story about your past. Would you rather it be a story about you sticking a private part of your anatomy into a dead pig's mouth during university or a story about how you paid a porn star $150,000 for sex while you were married?

  • Prevent the NHS from being completely privatized or see responsible climate legislation passed in the UK?

  • You're president of the US and you're making a state visit to the UK. As a part of that, you're going to sit down and do an interview with a major network. Who would you rather have interview you - Piers Morgan or James Gordon?

  • See Scotland gain its independence or see the continuation and permanent implementation of Brexit?
