When measuring how much of an influence King had on individuals, 28 percent said he influenced them “a great deal,” 38 percent said "somewhat," 16 percent said "not much," and 18 percent said "not at all."
Sunday's planned dedication of the new Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial in Washington D.C. has been postponed indefinitely because of Hurricane Irene's projected path up the U.S. east coast.
The poll was conducted by ORC International from August 24-25, with 1,017 adult Americans questioned by telephone. The poll's overall sampling error is plus or minus three percentage points.
