Americans Still Veto Separate Holiday for Lincoln

Americans honor both George Washington and Abraham Lincoln on Presidents’ Day which falls annually on or near Washington’s birthday. While Lincoln’s birthday is earlier in the month, most Americans think one holiday is enough for these two iconic presidents.

Only 30% of American Adults believe there should be a separate federal holiday for Lincoln’s birthday. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 61% disagree. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
