49% Think U.S. Has Liberty and Justice for All

This Fourth of July, half of Americans still see the nation as one with liberty and justice for all, and the majority wouldn’t live anywhere else.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 49% of American Adults believe the United States, as the Pledge of Allegiance states, is indeed a nation with liberty and justice for all. That’s down from last year’s four-year high of 53%  but up from the six-year low of 46% reached in 2014.
