Americans Still Feel Good About the Fourth of July

Most Americans still think highly of Independence Day AKA the Fourth of July and recognize what major historical event it celebrates.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 53% of American Adults consider the Fourth of July one of the nation’s most important holidays. That’s comparable to a year ago but down from a high of 61% in 2016. Only five percent (5%) view Independence Day as one of our least important holidays, while 38% rate it somewhere in between. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
