Gallup Poll on Evolution

The Gallup organization has released a poll on the "belief" in evolution:

On the eve of the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth, a new Gallup Poll shows that only 39% of Americans say they "believe in the theory of evolution," while a quarter say they do not believe in the theory, and another 36% don't have an opinion either way. These attitudes are strongly related to education and, to an even greater degree, religiosity. The poll was based on a random sample of 1018 adults, 18 and over.

The graphs are inciteful and show a results that are in keeping with other polls that have been conducted on the topic. Depressing.
