A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey shows that 73 percent of American adults believe English should be the official language of the United States of America. Just 18 percent disagree.
According to Rasmussen Reports, more than half of the states have made English their official language.
Despite the high numbers of support, that support is slowly decreasing. Two years ago, 77 percent supported English as the official language of the U.S. In 2014, it was 83 percent.
Rasmussen Reports also asked if election ballots and other official government documents should be printed in English only. Only 40 percent favor English only in those circumstances, which is a seven-point drop from two years ago.
Fifty-three percent believe ballots and other documents should be printed in other languages.
