Gallup's annual Values and Beliefs survey revealed that Americans are overwhelmingly negative about the future of moral values in the United States with 73 percent believing that moral values are deteriorating and are likely to continue getting worse.

What precisely do Americans mean by lack of moral values? Lack of tolerance, respect, or consideration for others was the top ranking problem. Overall, Gallup found that Americans believe the most important moral problems centered around matters of civility, family structure, and religion rather than popular political issues such as abortion and gay marriage.

The poll also asked about political party affiliation with 82 percent of Republicans, 72 percent of independents and 53 percent of Democrats have a negative opinion of U.S. moral values.
