Americans Worry About Credit Card Use But Not Their Own

There remains a large gap between the number of adults who feel most Americans use their credit cards too much and the number who think those overspenders include them.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 82% of American Adults have at least one credit card, including 40% who have three or more. Forty-two percent (42%) report having one or two credit cards. Just 16% say they don’t have any. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
