Americans Care Less About Faith, Patriotism: Poll

A Wall Street Journal poll shows that patriotism and religious affiliation among Americans has plummeted in the last 25 years.

The survey asked 1,019 Americans if they value patriotism, faith, family values and other staples of American life.

Is America being destroyed from within?

The results showed that only 39 percent of respondents said religious faith is very important to them while only 38 percent said the same of patriotism.

These numbers have severely decreased since the first time the WSJ conducted the poll in 1998. The outlet reports that the ’98 survey revealed that 62 percent of respondents valued religious faith and 70 percent of them said patriotism is very important.

Further, the survey showed that many respondents believe American society needs to do more to promote gender equality. Additionally, a large segment of respondents said the U.S. needs to do more to accept those who identify as homosexual.

However, a plurality of those surveyed reported that America has gone too far in accepting transgender ideology and making accommodations for trans people.

The poll also showed that nearly half of all respondents had a somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable view of using preferred pronouns for transgender individuals.

This poll is not alone in showing a recent decline in patriotism and American values.

Fox News reports that pride in America has dropped 30 percent since 2011.
