83% Give Thanks This Thanksgiving

The vast majority of Americans feel thankful this time of year.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 44% of American Adults still rank Thanksgiving as one of our nation’s most important holidays, down from a high of 49% last year but generally in keeping with annual surveys since 2006. Only eight percent (8%) view today’s holiday as one of the least important, while 43% rate it somewhere in between. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
