NewsWeek Poll on Belief in America

A brand new NewsWeek poll of Americans finds that 9 in 10 (91 percent) of American adults say they believe in God. Almost as many (87 percent) say they identify with a specific religion. Christians far outnumber members of any other faith in the country, with 82 percent of the poll’s respondents identifying themselves as such. Another 5 percent say they follow a non-Christian faith, such as Judaism or Islam.
Another interesting finding of the survey is that Democrats tend to believe (42%) that religion has too much influence in the country, whereas Republicans tend to believe (42%) that it has too little!
