32 Percent Have More to Be Thankful for This Year — Survey of the Day
Sometimes it gets lost in all the traveling and stuffing and football, but the point of Thanksgiving is to acknowledge the things you’re thankful for from the past year. According to a new poll from Harris Interactive of 2,463 adults, only 32 percent will have more to be thankful for this Thanksgiving than they have in the previous few Thanksgivings.
45 percent will have about as much to be thankful for this year, and 18 percent say that there is less to be thankful for in 2011. Last year, 41 percent of adults reported they had more to be thankful for.
According to the poll, the more educated a person is the more likely they are to be more thankful this year, and that this year’s comparatively most thankful age group is 18- to 34-year-olds.
