A mere 16 percent of respondents subscribed to the belief of "secular evolution": that humans have evolved with no divine guidance. However, this number has nearly doubled from nine percent of respondents in a poll from 1982.
There has been little change over the years in the percentage holding the "theistic evolution" view that humans evolved under God's guidance.
Most Americans believe in God, and about 85% have a religious identity. It is not surprising as a result to find that about 8 in 10 Americans hold a view of human origins that involves actions by God -- that he either created humans as depicted in the book of Genesis, or guided a process of evolution.
40% of Americans continue to hold to an anti-evolutionary belief about the origin of humans

This is such a compelling indictment of the American education system. There is no good reason for 40% of Americans to utterly reject evolutionary biology.
