Poll: Religion still important to a majority of Americans

Religion is still an important part of most Americans’ lives, even if they don’t visit a house of worship regularly.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 70% of American Adults say their religious faith is at least somewhat important in their daily life, including 42% who say it is Very Important. Twenty-eight percent (28%) say their religious faith is not important to their daily life, including 13% who say it is Not At All Important. This shows little change from earlier surveys.

The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on October 30-31, 2017 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. See methodology.
