American Voters: Leave 'Under God' in Pledge of Allegiance

A vast majority of likely American voters say the words "under God" should be left in the Pledge of Allegiance, according to a new poll from Rasmussen Reports.

The poll shows that 68 percent of voters believe schoolchildren should be required to say the Pledge of Allegiance every morning at school, while 25 percent say they shouldn't.

When it comes to the words "under God" in the Pledge, Americans widely support leaving them in. Eighty-three percent of likely voters said "under God" shouldn't be taken out of the Pledge, while only 11 percent said they should. Six percent of voters said they weren't sure either way.

The words have faced scrutiny in recent years for violating the separation of church and state, but a federal appeals court upheld the use of the words "under God" in the Pledge of Allegiance in 2010.

The national survey of 1,000 adults was conducted Aug. 28-29 by Rasmussen Reports.
