POLL: Only 58% of Democrats say ‘Merry Christmas’

If you needed more proof that America’s cultural divide is deepening, Save Jerseyans, look no further than survey results released today by the Monmouth University Poll.

9-in-10 Americans (89%) celebrate Christmas (down 5-points from 2015); a 1996 Gallup poll registered 96% commemorating Christmas.

Overall? 67% use “Merry Christmas” versus 25% who say “Happy Holidays.”

Republicans (87%) are far more likely to use “Merry Christmas” than independent or unaffiliated voters (61%) and Democrats (58%).

Democrats (34%) and independents (29%) use “Happy Holidays” for more frequently than their Republican (9%) neighbors and coworkers.

“With apologies to Mark Twain, reports of the death of ‘Merry Christmas’ have been greatly exaggerated,” opined Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute.
