A new poll finds Americans overwhelmingly prefer that stores use the phrase “Merry Christmas” in their seasonal advertising rather than “Happy Holidays.
The Rasmussen survey found 67 percent favor “Merry Christmas” while just 26 percent prefer “Happy Holidays.”
Rasmussen said the poll results were the same for males and females, and there were few demographic differences.
A sharp difference, however, showed up between Republicans and Democrats.
While 88 percent of Republicans prefer “Merry Christmas,” just 57 percent of Democrats favor the saying.”
