Most Still Link July 4 With Declaration of Independence

Most Americans still rate the Fourth of July high on their list of holidays, second only to Christmas, and correctly identify what it commemorates.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 56% of American Adults consider Independence Day one of the nation’s most important holidays, although that is down from a recent high of 61% a year ago. Just six percent (6%) view the Fourth of July as one of the least important holidays, while 36% rate it somewhere in between the two. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
