Most Will Welcome 2018 at Home, With a Kiss

Americans will be welcoming the new year from the comfort of their own homes, though many will be sharing a kiss, too.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 66% of American Adults will be at home at midnight when the new year arrives. Fourteen percent (14%) will be at a friend’s house, while five percent (5%) will be at a restaurant or bar. Another 10% will be somewhere else. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
