51% Regard Thanksgiving As One of Most Important Holidays

Thursday, November 22, 2012

Fifty-one percent (51%) of Americans now consider Thanksgiving to be one of the nation’s most important holidays, according to a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey.

As it has for years, Thanksgiving ranks just below Christmas and the Fourth of July in terms of top holidays. It rates above Memorial Day, Veterans Day and Easter. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Given the holiday week, there will be no Rasmussen Challenge  this week. The contest will resume on Tuesday, November 27.
