Our hopes for overturning the theocracy which seems to be replacing American democracy looks like an uphill battle based upon a recent Gallup poll:
Only about a third of Americans believe that Charles Darwin's theory of evolution is a scientific theory that has been well supported by the evidence, while just as many say that it is just one of many theories and has not been supported by the evidence. The rest say they don't know enough to say. Forty-five percent of Americans also believe that God created human beings pretty much in their present form about 10,000 years ago. A third of Americans are biblical literalists who believe that the Bible is the actual word of God and is to be taken literally, word for word.
I fear this data goes along with other data on the difference between blue and red state voters previously noted here (Stupid Enough to Vote for Bush).
