Data: Survey Monkey online polls conducted Nov. 10-17 among 6,075 U.S. adults and 802 teens. Total error margins are ±2.0 and ±4.0 percentage points for adults and teens respectively; Poll methodology; Chart: Chris Canipe/Axios

"It's a Wonderful Life" is the most popular Christmas movie in America, but that's mainly because the over-35 crowd likes it, according to an Axios/SurveyMonkey poll. "Home Alone" is way more popular with teens and young adults.

Between the lines: "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" and "Elf" are more popular among the younger set. "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation" has one specific audience: boomers and Gen-Xers who know who Chevy Chase is. And the big lesson: not enough people have seen "Die Hard."

Methodology: The data on adults are based on a SurveyMonkey online poll conducted among adults ages 18 and older in the United States. Respondents were selected from the more than 2 million people who take surveys on the SurveyMonkey platform each day. Data have been weighted for age, race, sex, education, and geography. The survey was conducted Dec. 10-17 among 6,075 adults. The modeled error estimate  for the full sample is plus or minus 2 percentage points and full crosstabs are available here.

The data on teens come from a SurveyMonkey online poll conducted among teenagers age 13-17 in the United States. Respondents were sampled from SurveyMonkey Audience, a nonprobability online panel. Data have been weighted for age, race, sex, education, and geography. The survey was conducted Dec. 10-16 among 802 teens. The modeled error estimate  for the full sample is plus or minus 4 percentage points and full crosstabs are available here.

The art and business of political polling

The election is just eight days away, and it’s not just the candidates whose futures are on the line. Political pollsters, four years after wrongly predicting a Hillary Clinton presidency, are viewing it as their own judgment day.

Axios Re:Cap digs into the polls, and what pollsters have changed since 2016, with former FiveThirtyEight writer and current CNN politics analyst Harry Enten.

Twitter launches warnings on election misinformation and delays

Twitter will start pinning notices to the top of all U.S. Twitter users’ timelines warning that results in next week’s election may be delayed and that they may encounter misinformation on mail-in voting.

Why it matters: Delayed election results are expected across many states that are handling unprecedented amounts of absentee and mailed ballots, which President Trump has baselessly called "very dangerous" and "corrupt."
