Poll: 57% of Americans Believe Only Winning Kids Should Receive Trophies
Support for participation trophies is strongly linked to political beliefs, according to an August Reason-Rupe poll. Fifty-seven percent of Americans believe that only winning players should receive trophies, while 40% believe every kid on the team should receive a trophy for participating - but support for participation trophies drops with income, education and age.
Two-thirds (67%) of college graduates think only winners should get trophies, whereas those with high school degrees are evenly divided in their support for participation trophies.
Likewise, 66% of Republicans believe only the kids who win should receive trophies, while Democrats are evenly divided: 48% say all kids should receive a trophy, and 48% say only winners.
