Gallup on Darwin

On Darwin’s Birthday, Only 4 in 10 Believe in Evolution

PRINCETON, NJ -- On the eve of the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth, a new Gallup Poll shows that only 39% of Americans say they "believe in the theory of evolution," while a quarter say they do not believe in the theory, and another 36% don't have an opinion either way. These attitudes are strongly related to education and, to an even greater degree, religiosity.

Perhaps if they had phrased the question -- "ARE YOU A FUCKING IDIOT?"
