Shockingly, Democrats are the least enthusiastic group.

Via Washington Secrets:

Take your “Happy Holidays” and shove it. Finally, there’s proof that Americans prefer “Merry Christmas.”

By a wide margin, 68 percent to 23 percent, Americans prefer stores with signs that say “Merry Christmas” during the Christmas holidays than the more generic and secular “Happy Holidays,” according to a new Rasmussen Reports survey.

A few examples:

– Among men, it’s 69 percent for “Merry Christmas,” compared to 22 percent for “Happy Holiday.”

– Women: 67 percent to 23 percent.

– Whites: 69 percent to 20 percent.

– Blacks: 56 percent to 40 percent.

– Republicans: 86 percent to 8 percent.

– Democrats: 51 percent to 41 percent.
