Americans Champion Public Religion, Christmas in Schools

Americans still strongly support Christmas in the schools and on other public property and continue to believe in the power of religious faith to better the world.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of American Adults think America would be a better place if most people attended religious services on a regular basis. Just nine percent (9%) say regular religious attendance would make America worse off, while 32% feel it would have no impact. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
