Drinking Age


In a new poll from Gallup, a strong 74 percent of adults oppose a federal law lowering the drinking age to 18, while a quarter are in favor. These results are in line with what Gallup has found in the past. Those with postgraduate degrees, those who drink alcohol weekly, and self-described liberals are most likely to favor a law lowering the drinking age, while those who do not drink, are conservative, and attend church weekly are least supportive.
