Poll: Trump Winning Battle Against The War On Christmas

The vast majority of Americans prefer "Merry Christmas" to "Happy Holidays," according to a new poll from Axios/SurveyMonkey.

Sixty-five percent of Americans said they're most likely to use the phrase "Merry Christmas" this year versus only 28 percent who said they 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," Axios reports.

The news is no doubt being taken hard by Andy Ostroy.

Incidentally, Newsweek said in an article released on Christmas Eve that President Trump is "using Christmas to advance white nationalism."

From The Daily Caller:
According to the “experts” interviewed by Newsweek’s Cristina Maza, Trump vowing to end the “war on Christmas” and promising his supporters they can say “Merry Christmas” again is just a “dog whistle” for white identity politics.

“I see such invocations of Christmas as a kind of cypher, what some would call a dog whistle,” Richard King, a Washington State University professor told Newsweek. “It does not appear to be intolerant or extreme, but to attentive audiences it speaks volumes about identity and belonging—who and what are fully American.”

One professor, Joe Perry, claims that Trump is employing tactics used by the Nazis to encourage anti-Semitism. The Nazis rewrote Christmas carols and politicized the holiday to promote exclusion and fascism.

Perry, who is a professor at Georgia State University, alleged that the “far right” has used the war on Christmas in order to warn people against multiculturalism and secularization.

“The far right’s engagement in the ‘war on Christmas’ explicitly posits that there is one single true or correct Christmas. The holiday’s true nature is somehow under threat from outsiders and liberals who act as forces of degradation, multiculturalism and secularization,” Perry said.

Maza, the author of the piece, admits that Trump has never called for genocide like Nazis did. However, Maza defers to the university “experts” who claim that the way Trump talks about Christmas “coexists with reemerging white identity politics.”

“Committed white nationalists love Trump’s bring back Christmas campaign almost as much as evangelicals,” Dr. Randy Blazak, a sociology professor, told Newsweek. “His followers see this as gospel and a rebuking of multiculturalism and political correctness, and the growing influence of Jews, Muslims, atheists and other non-WASPs.”
Trump's tweets this Christmas day no doubt sent these professors into a tailspin.

Merry Christmas, folks!
