Gallup published a poll on Monday that revealed fewer than half of people in the US belong to a church, synagogue, or mosque. This proportion has fallen from highs of 73% reported in Gallup’s first survey in 1937 and 76% in 1945. Their report noted that “Over the past two decades, the percentage of Americans who do not identify with any religion has grown from 8% in 1998-2000 to 13% in 2008-2010 and 21% over the past three years.”

Additional detail is available in this article from NPR.

Another Gallup poll from November 2019 showed that between 87% of Americans “believe in God” to 64% are “convinced that God exists”.

In a side note, Derek Chauvin has just been convicted of second degree murder, third degree murder, and second degree manslaughter. It is raining dollar bills in George Floyd square, according to the New York Times.
