Americans’ belief in God has fallen to a new low, according to the results of a new Gallup poll.
The poll, which was released on Friday, found 81 percent of U.S. residents believe in God. While that number represents a majority of Americans, it’s six percentage points lower than it was from 2013 to 2017, Gallup officials reveal. That number had reached a high of 98 percent from 1944 through the 1960s.
Of the remaining 19 percent, 17 percent of American adults said they don’t believe in God, while 2 percent said they weren’t sure, according to Gallup. Of the non-believers, 68 percent were young adults, the results reveal.
