Almost 7 in 10 Americans don't want their kids to become politicians

Washington, July 6 (ANI): Majority of Americans wants their child to become a doctor or an accountant but not a politician, a new poll has found.

The Gallup Poll found that nearly 64 percent of Americans do not want their child choose politics as their career, as compared to 31 percent who do.

The poll showed that non-whites were more likely to see their sons and daughters to choose politics as their career, in comparison to Whites.

There also exists a slight tendency for Democrats to favor a political career for their sons and daughters more than Republicans do, with a larger party difference for daughters.

The study also revealed that the high point for wanting a child to choose the career was 1965, when 36 percent of those surveyed said they wanted their kids to go into politics. (ANI)
