Nearly 40% of Americans Believe in Creation

Nearly 40% of Americans believe present day humans are exactly as they were created by God and did not experience evolution, according to a new national Suffolk University/USA TODAY poll. The study, which involved a survey of 1,000 registered voters conducted between Oct. 17-20 in all 50 states and the District of Columbia, also showed that even though another 24.3% of respondents said humans evolved into their current form, they believe God directed the process. Only 28.6% of respondents to the survey credited evolution for the state of humanity today, which is nearly 10% lower than the 36.9% who said God created humans as they are today. While more than half of Americans have accepted some level of evolution, the new Suffolk University/USA TODAY poll shows more than half of Americans, or 61.2%, believe God had a partial or exclusive hand in the state of humanity today. Only 52.9% of Americans believe the state of humanity today is either exclusively or partially due to evolution. Some 34% of conservative Republicans accepted evolution compared to 83% of Democrats, according to the study.
