Many Plead Ignorance on D-Day

Friday, June 07, 2019

Despite all this week’s hoopla, one-in-four Americans can’t place D-Day in the correct war, and fewer than half think most of their fellow countrymen even know what D-Day is.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 73% of American Adults recognize that D-Day was a major invasion in the Second World War. Nine percent (9%) think it took place during World War I, while three percent (3%) say the invasion was in the Korean War. One percent (1%) say the Civil War, and two percent (2%) say it was in something else. Thirteen percent (13%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on June 3-4, 2019 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
