This study of What Americans Believe, conducted by Penn Schoen Berland for the Aspen Ideas Festival in partnership with The Atlantic and the Aspen Institute, provides a detailed assessment of what Americans say their values are. From death to taxes, the economy to politics, family, religion, science, education, free speech, and beyond, this survey of 2,000 Americans identifies the issues that divide us and the ties that unite us as a nation.
