Even the 4th of July was politically polarized this year as various celebrities and Twitter greats let the world know how much they don’t like America. But maybe there’s still hope for a political reconciliation, judging by the latest American Customer Satisfaction Index.
The poll found Chick-fil-A remains America’s Favorite Restaurant for the eighth straight year. The fast-food chain, which specializes in chicken dishes, scored 83 out of 100, well ahead of other chains that scored 79 or fewer. Chick-fil-A’s popularity is all the more impressive given that Americans say they prefer full-service restaurants to fast-food joints.
Progressives made Chick-fil-A a boycott target because of the chain’s support of conservative cultural causes. Shops are closed on Sundays, and former company president Dan Cathy has been vocal in supporting groups opposed to same-sex marriages. The company has toned down its involvement in cultural politics in recent years, focusing on chicken. At least the dinner wasn’t ruined by politics.
