According to a recent poll conducted by The Wall Street Journal, the significance of traditional American values has significantly declined in the United States over the past few decades.
Inquiring about patriotism, religious faith, having children, and other conventional measures of the United States, a poll conducted on Monday surveyed American participants. The results indicated that only 39% of Americans consider their religious faith to be of great importance, and just 38% consider patriotism to be very significant.
When The Wall Street Journal conducted the poll for the first time in 1998, 62% of Americans claimed that religion was very important to them, and 70% stated that patriotism was of great importance. The WSJ compared these figures to the recent poll results.
The recent poll results were compared by The Wall Street Journal to its first poll conducted in 1998, where 62% of Americans considered religion to be very significant, and 70% viewed patriotism as very important.
Despite this, a significant portion of participants expressed that American society has already excessively accommodated transgender individuals, with 43% believing that this is the case. In contrast, less than 25% stated that the U.S. has appropriately addressed the matter, and 33% believed that society needs to do more to accommodate transgender people.
Around 50% of the participants held either a somewhat or very unfavorable opinion of being asked to utilize transgender pronouns, whereas only 18% had a favorable view. On the other hand, 32% of the respondents expressed a neutral stance regarding the matter.
Conducted in collaboration with NORC at the University of Chicago, The Wall Street Journal's poll surveyed 1,019 Americans from March 1 to March 13 and reported a margin of error of 4.1%.
New WSJ poll. This is how you lose a country.
In just 4 years, Patriotism drops from 61% to 38%.
Worse, Religion drops from 62% to 39%

This poll is part of a series of surveys that have discovered a decline in patriotism and other associated values in the United States.
In 2022, a poll conducted by Fox News revealed that pride in the country had decreased by 30% when compared to 2011. Similarly, a WSJ/NBC poll from 2019 discovered that the Millennial generation did not share many of the values held by older generations in the United States.
