Fewer Republicans Believe in Evolution

A new Pew Research survey finds that 60% of Americans say that "humans and other living things have evolved over time," while 33% reject the idea of evolution, saying that "humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time."

Most interesting: "In 2009, 54% of Republicans and 64% of Democrats said humans have evolved over time, a difference of 10 percentage points. Today, 43% of Republicans and 67% of Democrats say humans have evolved, a 24-point gap."
