Thanks partially to presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln, Americans have always prided themselves on being honest.

But are we still following the example of these icons?

According to a poll of 1,000 adults by Rasmussen Reports, maybe not so much. Sixty-six percent of the survey’s respondents answered that Americans aren’t as honest as they used to be.

The poll did also yield some more positive data, however. Fifty-eight percent believe their fellow citizens are still “basically honest,” up from 52 percent when Rasmussen asked the same question in 2010.
