In a poll made for Fox Nation and the ongoing War on Christmas, a survey has found a majority of Americans want Christmas to be less about the man in the Coca-Cola ads and more about the one with the birthday. The right-leaning pollster Rasmussen found that 76 percent of 1,000 adults surveyed want Christmas to be more about Jesus than about Santa Claus. Santa, the commercial face of the holiday, has been shaped by historical record and legend. Jesus is, naturally, its Biblical base.
Even with those results, a similar percentage of those surveyed — 75 percent — still think they are on the "nice" list.
