American Voters Say We Can Pray in Public Meetings

By a wide margin, American voters say it’s OK to have prayer in official, public meetings. In the most recent national survey by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind, 73% percent of voters say “prayer at public meetings is fine as long as the public officials are not favoring some beliefs over others.” Just one-quarter (23%) say “public meetings shouldn’t have any prayers at all because prayers by definition suggest one belief or another.” Republicans are significantly more likely to favor public prayer (88%-10%) than Democrats, but even Democrats by a large margin say prayer should be allowed (60%-36%). The national survey showed no significant differences between men and women, whites and nonwhites, or in different age groups.
