Poll: 61% say they changed their Thanksgiving plans due to COVID

61% changed their Thanksgiving plans because of the recent spike in virus cases.

As we’ve seen time and again around pandemic polling, partisan identification plays a role in behavior: Democrats (75%) are most likely to say they modified their holiday plans, followed by independents (61%) and Republicans (49%).

Democrats were the most likely to limit gatherings to their immediate households, as opposed to simply reducing the size of the gatherings.

About one in 10 respondents won’t observe Thanksgiving at all this year.
