How do I redirect users to a thank you page after they finish the survey, curently it takes me back to a page where I can view results.  

I added the ?Source=thankyou.aspx but it's directing users to the page but it's coming up as blank page.   Please advise.

Make sure the path to the thank you page is correct (?source=/path/to/thankyou.aspx).  And look at this: http://www.endusersharepoint.com/2009/07/23/url-source-for-thank-you-on-submit/; it might help.

Thank you for the link - it was very helpful!  I was able to create a ThankYou.aspx and made sure the path was correct by taking the URL from the NewForm.aspx and add ?Source=ThankYou.aspx in the browser.  I was able to take the survey and was redirected to a thank you page.  

Is there a way where I could change the layout of the survey page (newform.aspx?source=thankyou.aspx), currently it's inheriting the layout from the parent site....I'd like to add a new layout but don't know how to do it.  Any suggestions?

Glad I could help.

See this for the survey page: http://stevenderveaux.wordpress.com/2009/08/07/customizing-a-sharepoint-survey-newform-aspx-page/ or try googling Heather Solomon and survey layout.  She's a wizard.

Thanks nsyyoung!  Could you please provide more resources on where I could change the page layout specifically for the survey page.  Currently, it's inheriting the layout from the parent site.  I'd like to figure out a way not to show the navigation/Quick Launch not to show on the survey page so the survey could take up the "whole" page...Please let me know.

try this:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/3976996/sharepoint-2007-survey-creation-customization-issue 

beyond that, I haven't tried what you want to do, so I can't recommend what's worked for me. You might try asking that specific question in a new post.

Good luck, though, and I'm glad I could help with the original problem.  

Cheers,
nsy
