A new Rasmussen poll shows that most Americans still regard fatherhood as a man’s most important duty.

In this Rasmussen survey, 70 percent of adults agree with the statement that “being a father as the most important role for a man to fill in today’s role.” The online survey of 1,000 American adults took place June 14–15. It has a 95 percent confidence interval, and a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.

The polling company’s article discussing its survey does not provide a comparison for previous years’ data, so it is not clear how these attitudes have changed—if at all—from before modern social debates on the issues implicating by the term “father.”
