If it's in the News, it's in our Polls. Public opinion polling since 2003.


42% Will Make New Year's Resolution

Forty-two percent (42%) of Americans say that they will make a New Year’s Resolution for 2007. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of 1,000 adults found that 51% will not. Watching football on New Year’s Day is a bigger part of the national ritual—47% say they’ll be watching a game. Just 29% say they’ll be attending a party on New Year’s Eve. That includes 49% of those under 30 and just 14% of those over 65. Younger Americans are also far more likely than their elders to make a resolution for the New Year.
