The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
In a democracy, it's common to think of freedom and equality as essentially synonymous. These are core values that must both be upheld in order to have any semblance of democracy.

13% of voters believe that there’s a conflict between the American ideals of freedom and equality: that giving more freedoms leads to more types of inequality.

Scott Rasmussen explores these thoughts in different demographics in his new number of the day podcast.
