One-third Americans say humans haven't evolved

  • A new survey suggests that about one-third of Americans think that humans haven't evolved over time and "living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time."

    Among those who believe in human evolution attribute it to natural selection and other natural processes. The survey also found that there are disagreements across religion and politics. 

    Democrats are more likely to say that humans have evolved as compared to Republicans and 78 percent of white mainline Protestants don't believe in human evolution and opposed to 64 percent of white evangelical Protestants who do.

    The survey is based on telephone interviews of 1,983 adults and the margin of error is three percent plus or minus.
