If religion is not as important to people in New England as it is in other parts of the country, then what do we consider most important?
Honestly, I would need Gallup to produce another poll or reveal more information than what was in the report I mentioned in my last post to really get to the answer. But, since I've lived in Worcester, MA for 85% of my life and... since this city is perfectly situated within a 1 hour drive to all of the major cities in NE except for Portland, ME (2+ hours) - I'm going to make some assumptions and take a guess at what we consider important.
We consider community to be important. You might be saying to yourself, "that's a no brain-er" or "that's true in other regions of the country as well". So, that brings me to the type of questions I would like Gallup to study.
- "How are you involved your community?"
- "To which organizations do you give your time and money?"
- "How much time in your week do you dedicate to community involvement?"
- "How much money do you give each year to community organizations?"
