Values that once defined America are no more

The importance of traditional American values has plummeted in the U.S. in recent decades, according to a new poll from The Wall Street Journal.

The Monday poll questioned U.S. respondents about the importance of patriotism, religious faith, having children and other traditional U.S. metrics. The poll found that just 39% of Americans say their religious faith is very important to them, and just 38% say patriotism is very important.

The WSJ compared those numbers ot the first time it ran the poll in 1998 when 62% of Americans said religion was very important to them, and 70% said patriotism was very important.

Meanwhile, a plurality of respondents reported that the U.S. has not gone far enough in promoting equality between men and women; accepting people who are gay, lesbian or bisexual or promoting racial and ethnic diversity in business and universities.
