polls on evolution
A new Gallup poll on public opinion about evolution suggests that the rate of acceptance of evolution in the United States is "essentially unchanged" over the years.
A bare majority of New Jerseyans accept evolution, according to a new poll from Monmouth University and the Asbury Park Press.
Almost half — 47% — of Americans surveyed in 2010 agreed that "human beings, as we know them today, developed from earlier species of animals," and 38% agreed that "the universe began with a huge explosion."
A poll of Protestant pastors in the United States found that they "overwhelmingly believe that God did not use evolution to create humans and think Adam and Eve were literal people," according to a press release (January 9, 2012) issued by LifeWay Research.
A new poll asked respondents about their views on evolution and climate change, what they regard the scientific consensus on those topics to be, and whether it matters to them whether candidates for president share their views.
