Shocking Poll: Affairs considered immoral

OK, not really shocking, but Gallup sure picked a good day to re-release a poll testing the perceived morality of various "taboos."

Turns out 92% of Americans consider extramarital affairs to be morally unacceptable. If anything, that number must be a little higher in conservative South Carolina.

In fact, cheating is considered the MOST morally wrong of all the taboos included in the poll, topping (if that's the word) suicide, abortion, polygamy and human cloning.



Opinions about the morality of affairs remain virtually unchanged since 2001. The percentage of respondents calling infidelity "morally wrong" has remained between 87% and 93% over the last eight years.
