Americans Continue to Honor Memorial Day

Memorial Day, a time when Americans honor those who lost their lives while serving in the U.S. military, remains one of the nation's most important holidays.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 46% of American Adults consider Memorial Day to be one of the nation’s most important holidays, while only six percent (6%) think it’s one of the least important. Forty-four percent (44%) feel it’s somewhere in between. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
