In the event of conflicts, 45% of voters say their highest loyalty is to family. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 20% said their highest loyalty goes to their faith or religion while 18% said it’s to themselves.
Twelve percent (12%) place the federal government as tops, 3% say their state government, and 2% their employer.
As on many issues, those with a postgraduate degree have a decidedly different perspective. Among voters with such high levels of formal education, 32% name family as their top priority followed closely by the federal government.

The survey of 1,200 Registered Voters was conducted online by Scott Rasmussen on September 8, 2021. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
The margin of sampling error for the full sample is +/- 2.8 percentage points.
