More than 50% of respondents rated the country's moral values as "poor," beating the previous record by only 1 percentage point. Only 1% of respondents rated the country's morality as "excellent," while 12% said it is "good," and 37% said it is "only fair."

A whopping 78% also say the state of moral values in the country is getting worse.

Although the nation's view of its morality has always been negative — an average of 43% have rated morals in the U.S. as "poor" since 2002 — the number of "poor" ratings is higher than ever before.

Seventy-two percent of Republicans gave the country a "poor" rating, the highest number since the poll began. Democrats were more favorable of the nation's moral values, with only 36% agreeing with the "poor" rating. Forty-four percent of independents also agreed with the characterization.
