Two-thirds of Americans reported that they consume alcohol at least occasionally, according to the poll conducted July 9-12. When asked how many drinks they had in the past week, 34 percent of these drinkers said none, 52 percent said one to 7, and 12 percent said eight or more.
Gallup found that 22 percent of drinkers said they sometimes drink too much, up from 17 percent last year. This year's figure, however, is similar to the percentages in most other years over the past decade, according to a statement from the research firm.
When asked which kind of alcohol they drink most often, 39 percent of those surveyed said beer, 35 percent said wine and 22 percent said liquor. But these numbers hide a gender divide in preference. The slight majority of male drinkers, 55 percent, said they most often drink beer, followed by liquor at 21 percent, and wine at 20 percent. Among female drinkers, meanwhile, 52 percent said they most often drink wine, with the rest divided over liquor and beer, according to Gallup.
