What Did You Do This Summer?

If you are like 72 percent of the people polled for a Rasmussen Reports survey that asked what American did this summer, your number one summer activity was going to a cookout or a barbecue. Was it? Was that your number one activity this summer? I figured that number would have been a lot higher. So what else did Americans do this summer?

The telephone survey of 1,000 people also found–coming in at a close second with 70 percent–Americans read a book this summer. 56 percent of those polled watched fireworks, 49 percent went on vacation and 51 percent did not go on a vacation.

So, what activities ranked lowest as the least popular for the summertime? Watching a movie in a movie theatre, going to the beach and going to an outdoor concert or theatre event were among the least popular summertime activities.
