A recent YouGov survey about the Constitution included a question about whether there should be a Constitutional convention to update the document that was created on Sept. 17, 1787 and ratified in 1788. According to the results, 41 percent of Democrats said the Constitution "should be updated" and 43 percent said it has "held up well."
In comparison, only 20 percent of Republicans said they would like the Constitution updated. Around 68 percent thought the opposite. In addition, 57 percent said the document was fine the way it is. Around 28 percent of those surveyed overall said they wanted a new Constitutional convention to update the Constitution.
In addition, 53 percent of blacks want the Constitution updated. Only 23 percent of whites want the Constitution updated. The YouGov study was held April 8-10. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio said he would support holding a Constitutional convention if he were president to establish term limits for members of Congress and federal judges and to pass a balanced budget.
