68% Consider Fatherhood A Man’s Most Important Role

Father’s Day ranks lower than ever in terms of importance to Americans, but most still agree on the importance of fatherhood itself.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 10% of American Adults consider Father’s Day one of America’s most important holidays. Twenty-six percent (26%) rate it as one of the least important holidays, while 61% place it somewhere in between the two. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
