The percentage of Americans who believe in God is the lowest in 80 years, according to a new Gallup poll released Friday.

In the May 2-22 Values ​​and Belief Poll, 81% of people said they believed in God. In the 2017 survey, they believed in God, six percent less than the 87% of respondents. This year is the lowest percentage in Gallup’s trend since the first public opinion poll was conducted in 1944.

In this year’s survey, 17% of Americans said they do not believe in God.

When asked questions first in 1944, again in 1947, and twice in the 1950s and 1960s, 98% of respondents stated that they believed in God. When Gallup asked the question nearly five decades later, in 2011, 92% of Americans said they believed in God.

The number of Americans who believe we have low moral values ​​is at an all-time high: Poll

A subsequent survey in 2013 found that trust in God had dropped from 90% to 87%, typically between 2014 and 2017, before falling to 81% this year, in three subsequent updates.

The survey found that in recent times, young adults and those on the left side of the political spectrum, the Liberals and Democrats, have seen the biggest decline in faith in God.

Gallup said that group 2022 figures show a drop of 10 percentage points or more compared to the 2013-2017 average turnout. While there has been no significant change in conservative and married adults, according to the poll, most other major subgroups have experienced at least a modest decline.

The survey found that even the most declining groups are currently less likely to believe in God, including liberals (62%), young adults (68%) and Democrats (72%). Belief in God is highest among political conservatives (94%) and Republicans (92%), who, according to Gallup, say “religion is the key determinant of political divisions in the United States.”
