Americans Are More Okay With Cloning Humans Than Cheating on a Spouse

Most Popular
Passionate Embrace

According to a new Gallup poll, Americans are more liberal than they’ve ever been. Things like birth control, having a baby outside of marriage, and even doctor-assisted suicide are considered more morally acceptable than ever. However, only 9% of Americans think extramarital affairs are acceptable, so don’t even think about it, Jerry.

Literally everything is more popular than extramarital affairs. Polygamy is more popular than extramarital affairs, presumably because at least everyone in a plural marriage has signed up for it. Cloning humans is even more popular than extramarital affairs, though there’s no data yet on what Americans think of extramarital affairs with a human clone, which is basically the premise of Westworld (ok fine, they’re robots, but you get it).

“Of the 19 issues included in this year’s poll, 13 show meaningful change in a liberal direction over time, regardless of whether they are currently at their high point in Gallup’s trend,” according to the survey. “No issues show meaningful change toward more traditionally conservative positions compared with when Gallup first measured them.”

This is the way things tend to go. However, it’s easy to rely on the long arc of history bending in the favor of liberal ideology rather than doing any work to make sure public policy reflects these values. Currently, though 43% of Americans say abortion is morally acceptable, and nearly 70% say abortion should be legal, states keep enacting restrictive abortion laws. Public opinion doesn’t automatically mean those values are reflected in culture.

But also, if you’re going to have an affair, perhaps just talk to your partner about non-monogamy first.
