The votes are in: 'Merry Christmas' wins

It's true: “Merry Christmas" is the preferred greeting of a strong majority of Americans. An Axios/SurveyMonkey poll finds that 65% want to be greeted with “Merry Christmas," while 28% prefer “Happy Holidays."

Not surprisingly, it's a big winner with supporters of President Trump — who promised to end what conservatives call the “war on Christmas" — but even Trump haters prefer it by a narrower margin.
