Confidence in Religion at Low Point

posted Jul 12, 2012, 6:56 PM by Interfaith WS

    Forty-four percent of Americans have a great deal or quite a lot of confidence in "the church or organized religion" today, just below the low points Gallup has found in recent years, including 45% in 2002 and 46% in 2007. This follows a long-term decline in Americans' confidence in religion since the 1970s.  These results are from Gallup's June 7-10 update of its annual "Confidence in Institutions" question.
