Winning The "War On Christmas"

The title above is a joke, of course. There is no war on christmas, and never has been. It was a fraudulent premise put forward by right-wingers to keep fundamentalists in the Republican fold. And it has been partially successful, with 34% of the population believing that fake war really exists (along with 57% of Republicans and 60% of Trump voters -- proving a majority of them have low brain function).

Fortunately, most Americans are smarter than that. About 51% of the public doesn't believe in a war on christmas. That gives me a little hope that maybe humanity is not doomed by its own stupidity.

This chart was made from information in a Public Policy Polling survey -- done on December 6th and 7th of a random national sample of 1,224 registered voters, with a margin of error of 2.8 points.
