Welcome 2019!

It’s officially a new year, but Americans aren’t heralding the holiday as one of the nation’s most important.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 13% of American Adults consider New Year’s Day to be one of our nation’s most important holidays, in line with recent years. Twenty-nine percent (29%) think it’s one of the least important holidays, while 54% see it as somewhere in between.
