What America Thinks: Over the River and Through the Woods

Americans are on the road this holiday season. With an improving economy and economic confidence up, 24% tell us they plan to travel for the holidays, tying an all-time high in Rasmussen Reports surveying. Nearly twice as many (46%) have family and friends coming to visit them this holiday season. That’s the highest finding in surveys since 2009.

Thanksgiving travel was also up this year from last year’s all-time low.

A record number of Americans rate the holiday season as joyous this year, too, rather than stressful, and apparently they're off to celebrate with others.
