Independence Day Still An Important Holiday for Americans

The FINANCIAL -- The Fourth of July continues to be one of the nation’s most important holidays in the eyes of Americans, but the number of adults who feel that way is dwindling.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 52% of American Adults consider Independence Day one of the nation’s most important holidays. That’s down from 56% in 2017, 61% in 2016 and 58% in 2015. Only six percent (6%) think the Fourth of July is the least important holiday, while 40% feel it’s somewhere in between. 

Rasmussen Reports updates are also available on Twitter or Facebook.

The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on June 27-28, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
