Sumary of How Americans Are Spending Thanksgiving: Travel Up 12% Over 2020 As Two-Thirds Have Gatherings—Including With The Unvaccinated:
- Two-thirds (67%) of U.S. adults are planning to gather with friends or family outside their households for Thanksgiving, an Axios/Ipsos poll conducted November 21-23 among 1,023 U.S. adults found.
- That includes a majority of Americans across the political spectrum, with 73% of Republicans, 70% of Independents and 63% of Democrats all attending Thanksgiving gatherings.
- Deloitte found in September that 42% of Americans plan to travel between Thanksgiving and mid-January, and a November Harris poll found 48% of respondents have either made travel plans for 2022 or intend to do so.
- Nationwide Covid-19 cases have gone up by 27% over the past two weeks, according to public health data compiled by the New York Times, which could affect people’s decision to gather later in the holiday season if the trend continues.
