A Pew Research Center surveyreveals that Democrats are far less likely than Republicans to say that knowing the nation’s Pledge of Allegiance is important to being a good citizen of the United States.
Overall, only about 34 percent of Democrats say knowing the Pledge of Allegiance is very important to being a good American citizen compared to more than 7-in-10 Republicans who said the same.
Likewise, only 25 percent of Democrats said displaying the American flag is important to being a good American citizen. About 50 percent of Republicans said displaying the flag was important.
While nearly 8-in-10 Republicans said “always following the law” was very important to being a good American citizen, only about 61 percent of Democrats said the same. At the same time, more than half of Democrats said protesting was very important to being a good U.S. citizen while only 35 percent of Republicans said the same.
When it comes to voting in elections, paying taxes, serving jury duty, participating in the U.S. Census, and following the news, a majority of Democrats and Republicans largely align that all are very important to being a good U.S. citizen.
