Jesus Vs. Santa, And The Winner Is…
Most Americans still believe Jesus is the reason for the season and prefer commercial Christmas greetings over generic holiday ones.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that two-out-of three American Adults (67%) believe Christmas should be more about Jesus Christ than about Santa Claus. Just 14% think the holiday should be more Santa-focused, while 19% are undecided.
The survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on December 4-5, 2018 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
