50% Have A Kiss on Their List This New Year’s Eve

Most Americans will once again welcome the new year from home, and for many a kiss will be on the agenda.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey shows that 65% of American Adults plan to be at home at midnight when 2020 arrives. Thirteen percent (13%) intend to be at a friend’s house, while four percent (4%) will welcome the new year from a restaurant or bar. Twelve percent (12%) think they will be somewhere else. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
