Are You Going To Make a New Year’s Resolution? — Survey of the Day
Do people really make New Year's resolutions anymore? Do they actually keep them?
Poll Position asked 1,098 adults if they planned on making a New Year’s resolution this year. Forty-eight percent said that they didn’t, 33 percent answered that they did, and 18 percent had no opinion on the question.
Only 22 percent of those over 65 said they would kick off 2012 with a resolution. This was the lowest percentage among any age group, and suggests that with age comes the wisdom that New Year’s resolutions just might be pretty pointless.
