(FeaturedNews.com) – A new poll from the Wall Street Journal has shown a decline in the importance of traditional American values across the nation.
As part of the Monday poll, U.S. respondents were questioned about patriotism, religious faith, childbearing, and other traditional U.S. metrics. According to the results, only 39 percent of respondents stated that religious faith was of particularly big importance to them. Similarly, 38 percent of Americans also claimed that patriotism was very important.
The WSJ proceeded to compare the new results from the poll to the poll results from 1998, which was the first year that this poll was conducted. At the time, 62 percent of Americans had said that they considered religion very important, and 70 percent had said that patriotism was very important.
At the same time, the majority of respondents agreed that the U.S. has not done enough in order to push for equality between men and women or accept those who belong to the LGBTQ+ community. They also agreed that there has not been enough of a push toward promoting racial and ethnic diversity in both university and business.
A large plurality of Americans, 43 percent, also stated that the accommodations for those who are transgender have gone too far, while 25 percent stated that the issue had been dealt with correctly. Around 33 percent claimed that further accommodations were needed.
Around 50 percent of respondents also held a very or somewhat unfavorable view of being asked to use transgender pronouns, while only 18 percent had a positive view on the matter. Thirty two percent were neutral.
