POLL: Overwhelming Majority of College Students Believe Saying “Merry Christmas” is not Offensive
The College Fix reported on a recent poll it conducted on attitudes towards Christmas.
Although it’s pretty well-established that political correctness is the order of the day on college campuses across America, this pc mind virus has not fully taken over people’s beliefs regarding Christmas.
According to its recent poll, the College Fix found that the vast majority of university students did not find it offensive to wish “Merry Christmas” to a stranger.
The poll posed 1,000 college students the following question: “Is it offensive to wish ‘Merry Christmas’ to a stranger?”
88 percent responded in the negative. 4 percent responded in the affirmative. 8 percent declared that they were not sure.
Similar results were found in 2016 when a national poll surveyed 1,224 registered voters and found that only 3 percent of respondents were offended by “Merry Christmas.”
An online survey and analytics company the College Pulse conducted this survey exclusively for The College Fix.
The Fix surveyed about 1,000 students, which included 294 Democrat students, 531 Independents, and 171 college Republicans. Of those questioned, 8 percent of Democrat students responded that it’s offensive to wish someone a Merry Christmas and 3 percent of independent students held the same belief. On the other hand, only 1 percent of Republican students said this statement was offensive.
Despite how dominant the Left is on college campuses, there are still people out there who have some degree of sanity regarding the Christmas season.
Good news like this is always welcome right before Christmas.
