68% Think School Children Should Say Pledge of Allegiance Every Morning

The Massachusetts Supreme Court will hear arguments tomorrow challenging the legality of the Pledge of Allegiance. But most Americans continue to believe the daily Pledge of Allegiance to the flag should be kept in schools and that it should include the words “under God.”

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 68% of American Adults believe students should be required to say the Pledge of Allegiance every morning at school. One-in-four (25%) do not think children should be required to say the daily pledge. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
