God still popular....

According to a recent Gallup poll, if Americans are asked if they believe in God or a universal spirit, more than 90% will say yes. However, when Americans are given more finely-tuned response categories, it becomes obvious that a somewhat smaller percentage of Americans (although still the substantial majority) are absolutely convinced that God exists.

73% of Americans are true believers, convinced that God exists beyond a doubt.

87% of Americans are basic believers in the existence of God, saying either that they are convinced that God exists or that God probably exists and they have only a little doubt that this is the case.

3% of Americans can be considered to be hard-core atheists convinced that God does not exist.

4% are agnostics of a sort, leaning toward a belief that God does not exist, but not sure that this is the case beyond a doubt.
