According to a recent Rasmussen Report, an overwhelming majority of Americans say they want school children to say the Pledge of Allegiance every morning at school. 77% of American voters say that school children should say the Pledge of Allegiance every morning in school. Eighty-two percent (82%) say the words “under God” should remain in the Pledge It would appear that we have a patriotic country after all. So who is it that is out of touch with America and its values when they try to prevent children from reciting the Pledge of Allegiance?
Seventy-seven percent (77%) of U.S. voters say school children should say the Pledge of Allegiance every morning at school, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
Just 13% say they should not, and nine percent (9%) are undecided.
Eighty-two percent (82%) say the words “under God” should remain in the Pledge as well. Fourteen percent (14%) think the phrase should be dropped from the Pledge, and just four percent (4%) have no opinion.
Men and women are in near agreement on saying the Pledge every day. Eighty-four percent (84%) of African-American voters think school children should say the Pledge daily, compared to 77% of whites.

Half of Democrats (50%) say children should be able to opt out of saying the Pledge, but 58% of GOP voters say they should not be able to do so. Unaffiliateds oppose opting out by a six-point margin.
