DOUBLE-TAP:  Public Policy Polling surveyed 1200 registered voters on Halloween, and ...
  • Chocolate bars (62%) easily the most popular candy, followed by "something else," candy corn, fruit-flavored snacks, and candy apples.
  • Only 36% wish they could still go trick-or-treating.
  • More Americans believe a black cat is good luck than bad.
  • 37% believe in ghosts, but only 26% have seen one (including 49% of 18-29 year-olds surveyed).
  • Zombies top vampires and werewolves (there wolves!) as the scariest monster, but if folks had their choice they'd prefer to be turned into a vampire or witch (including 9% of male respondents).  Also, the older one is, the more likely one is to be afraid of vampires, and less likely to fear zombies.
  • If zombies took over the world and human civilization collapsed, 32% believe they'd still survive for a year-plus; 27% assume they'd be goners within a week.  Per the crosstabs, men are more optimistic.
