Americans are winning the war on Christmas, with most people saying the holiday should be more about Jesus than Santa, a new poll shows.

A Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday finds 71 percent want to keep Christ in Christmas — up from the 60 percent who favored Christ over Claus last year, and near the level recorded in 2012.

According to Rasmussen Reports, only 14 percent think Christmas should be more about Santa, down from 20 percent a year ago.

Also, 64 percent say they prefer stores with signs saying "Merry Christmas" over ones with "Happy Holidays," while 24 percent prefer the generic greeting and 12 percent are undecided.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
