Rasmussen Poll: 81% Say English Should Be Official Language Of United States
A new poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports and ProEnglish has found that 81% of Americans believe that English should be the official language of the United States.
The Rasmussen national survey of 1,000 American adults was conducted on April 22-23, 2018.
Rasmussen asked the 1,000 Americans: “Should English be the official language of the United States?”
81% responded yes; 12% responded no; 6% responded not sure.
95% of Republicans and 75% of Democrats agreed that English should be the official language of the United States.
Rasmussen also asked: “Is English the official language of the U.S. government?”
77% responded yes, incorrectly believing that English is the official language of the U.S. government; 15% responded no, correctly stating that English is not the official language of the U.S. government; 8% were not sure.
Rasmussen’s final poll question asked: “Should election ballots and other official government documents be printed in English only or should they also be printed in other languages?”
50% said English only; 44% said other languages; 6% were not sure.
The Rasmussen Reports national survey has a margin of sampling error of +/- 3% with a 95% level of confidence.
ProEnglish is very pleased with the outstanding survey results showing that 81% of the Americans polled believe that English should be the official language of the United States.
ProEnglish will be sharing these overwhelmingly pro-official English poll results with both Congress and the White House in the coming days in an effort to accelerate the passage of the English Language Unity Act and the signing of a new Executive Order by President Trump in order to repeal former President Clinton’s onerous Executive Order 13166 which mandates costly foreign language translations and interpretations for federal fund recipients.
ProEnglish hopes that these new overwhelmingly pro-official English poll results will cause Congress and the White House to act in rapid fashion on these measures.
