"Merry Christmas" Preference Up From Last Year

In a new poll released this past Sunday, Rasmussen Reports has found that more Americans prefer "Merry Christmas" than did last year.

The Rasmussen survey found that 72% prefer "Merry Christmas" while 22% prefer "Happy Holidays".

The other 6% were unsure.

I found other data from the survey very interesting, including a political, partisan difference. Who do you think prefers "Merry Christmas"---Republicans or Democrats?

Interestingly, 91% of Republicans prefer "Merry Christmas" compared to just 58% of Democrats.

Seventy percent (70%) of adults not affiliated with either major political party prefer "Merry Christmas".

Last year, 68% of all adults preferred "Merry Christmas".

Rasmussen also found that married couples significantly prefer "Merry Christmas" over single adults.

With more people wanting to be greeted with "Merry Christmas," one would wonder if the "There is no God" campaign is having an effect. And if so, what effect? The leaders of the "No God" campaign have said they want people to think about these things. Perhaps people are thinking about it.

Merry Christmas.
