A new poll for Halloween asked 1,000 Americans about the paranormal, and found almost one in five of us think we’ve seen a GHOST before.
19% of people say they’ve seen a ghost. Here are a few more quick stats on things we’ve experienced but can’t explain . . .
1. Most who’ve seen a ghost say it’s happened multiple times. Just 9% say it only happened once. Almost a third say it’s happened more than five times.
2. There’s a 50/50 chance you’ll know the ghost you encounter. Of people who’ve seen a ghost, 29% said they knew the person . . . 29% said it was a stranger . . . 28% said they’ve seen both . . . and 14% weren’t sure, or didn’t see the ghost’s face.
3. Most ghosts are nice. 40% of people said the ghosts they’ve encountered have been “good,” compared to just 7% who said “evil.” A lot of people said they’ve met good AND evil spirits though.
