Gallup Poll Puts U.S. Atheists at 7% or Less
A recent Gallup Poll asked directly, "Do you believe in God?" 92% said yes, 7% said no, and 1% had no opinion. If the poll is an accurate representation, as many as 7% of Americans may be atheists. I say "as many as," because it is possible people who believe in multiple gods, or consider the question to be specific to the Christian god might also answer no. The poll also has an interesting breakdown and asked other variations on the question.
