(CSI) reveals, with 12% strongly agreeing that they plan to do so. “This willingness was even more prevalent among millennials, with 19% of consumers aged 18-34 planning to use it,” the company says. Only 7% of baby boomers (ages 55+) claimed a strong chance of doing likewise. The study was conducted by Harris Poll.
