Fourth of July Continues to Resonate with Americans: Rasmussen Survey

In a recently published poll by Rasmussen Reports, the Fourth of July continues to hold a significant place in the hearts of Americans, even 247 years after the Declaration of Independence was signed in 1776.

The report highlights the fact that “55% of American Adults consider the Fourth of July to be one of our nation’s most important holidays.”

This number marks a slight rise from last year, where 53% held the same sentiment.

The survey, conducted by Rasmussen Reports, reached out to 1,153 American adults between June 25-27, 2023.

Their methodology ensures that the margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.

The report also noted that all Rasmussen Reports surveys are carried out by Pulse Opinion Research.

On the other side of the spectrum, the report indicates that only a tiny portion of the American public, precisely “six percent (6%) think the anniversary of the Declaration of Independence in 1776 is one of our least important holidays.”

Meanwhile, 36% of respondents saw the significance of the holiday somewhere in between.

These findings signify the enduring importance of Independence Day in American culture, standing as a key reminder of the country’s origins and the values of freedom and democracy it was founded upon.
