Americans Regard Military Highly

The Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life reports that the American public’s esteem for the Military is high. The findings are based on a survey of 4,006 adults via telephone interviews conducted March 21-April 8, 2013. The report further explains the findings:

Americans report that they continue to hold the military in high regard, with more than three-quarters of U.S. adults (78%) saying that members of the armed services contribute “a lot” to society’s well-being. That’s a modest decline from 84% four years ago, the last time the Pew Research Center asked the public to rate various professions. But the military still tops the list of 10 occupational groups, followed closely by teachers, medical doctors, scientists and engineers. A solid majority of the public says each of those occupations contributes a lot to society.

Whites are somewhat more likely than either Blacks or Hispanics to say members of the military contribute a lot to society. And Republicans and independents who lean toward the Republican Party are somewhat more likely than Democrats and independents who lean toward the Democratic Party to see the military as contributing a lot to society.
