Description

The moral state of the nation is subject to interpretation among political parties, according to a Gallup poll released yesterday. Overall, 77 percent of Americans think the country's moral values are on the decline -- a figure that has risen 10 points in three years. There is a partisan gap, however. The number stands at 82 percent among Republican respondents and 72 percent among Democrats. Democrats are more optimistic about American morality. The poll found that 18 percent of Democrats felt the moral climate was improving, compared with 14 percent of Republicans. Overall, 16 percent of respondents said the nation's moral climate was improving.
