More voters picked Washington politicians over Wall Street executives as”turkeys” of the year, a new survey shows.
Forty-six percent of voters picked Washington politicians as turkeys, while 33 percent chose financial executives, according to a Fox News poll.
Nearly two-thirds of Republicans (63 percent) picked politicians, while more Democrats (47 percent) went with Wall Street honchos. Independents leaned towards needling D.C. politicians, at 41 percent, over Wall Street, at 31 percent.
Almost all Americans - 96 percent - said they were either “very” or “somewhat” thankful. Only four percent said that they were “not very” or “not at all” thankful.
Meanwhile, the Thanksgiving poll also showed that partisans were more likely than independents to be thankful this Thanksgiving. An overwhelming 81 percent of Republicans and 80 percent of Democrats told pollsters that they were “very” thankful. Fewer independents, 74 percent, felt the same way.
The Fox News poll was conducted with 914 registered American voters from November 13-15, and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percentage points.
