Fewer Americans now accept Evolution

Evolution Survey Reveals Divide Over Scientific View

A Pew Survey of Americans’ views on evolution reveals that fewer believe that humans have evolved over time. The number of Republicans who said they believe in evolution dropped from 54 percent in 2009 to 43 percent in 2013, yet nearly two-thirds of Democrats say they believe in evolution. The survey indicates that partisan differences over evolution remain even when racial, ethnic and religious determinants are taken into account. No single reason seems to account for the change, but the survey points to changing political affiliations, demographics and religious beliefs as possible factors.
