As cultural crises continue, a new poll from Gallup reveals a heartbreaking reality driving our collective consternation: a significant decrease in the proportion of Americans who believe in God.
While 81% of U.S. adults told Gallup they still believe in the Lord, this proportion is down from the 87% measured in 2017 and the 92% recorded in 2011—and it is the lowest measure ever registered since Gallup began asking the question in 1944.
Meanwhile, a notable 17% said they do not believe in the Almighty.
These proportions have captured headlines, though some of the most intriguing findings emerge when one digs deeper into the data. According to Gallup, numerous categories of Americans have decreased their propensity to believe in God, but two remain relatively unchanged: married adults and conservatives.
From 2013 to 2017, 89% of married U.S. adults expressed belief in God, with that proportion remaining at 88% in 2022. At the same time, 95% of conservatives expressed belief in the Lord between 2013 and 2017, with that proportion remaining at 94% in 2022.
