A story by the Guardian indicates that four in five people in the UK reject creationism in its traditional form. The author writes:
The east of England may be the most godless region of the UK, according to a "belief map" published by a theology thinktank today. Almost half of adults there believe the theory of evolution makes God obsolete, and more than 80% disagree with creationism and intelligent design, which propose that humans were created by God in the past 10,000 years, and that life owes its complexity to divine intervention.
If you look at the interactive map, support for ID never gets higher than 16 percent, in Ireland. Ireland is also where the largest percentage of staunch creationists reside, 25 percent. On the other hand, it is clear that many people have no idea to what they are objecting:
The survey, which was conducted to mark the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth, found that nearly half of the British adult population could not name the country's greatest naturalist as the author of On the Origin of Species, the 1859 book that introduced evolution through natural selection to a sceptical Victorian society.
"We don't know what it is, but we know its bad." Modern education at its finest. Interestingly, in all places except Wales, the percentage of people who think that evolution removes the need for God is larger than those who accept some form of theistic evolution.
