I've blogged a bunch of these Gallup polls over the years and my demographic has always been at the bottom of the barrel preference-wise. But things are improving: In 2007, just 45 percent said they'd vote for an atheist, then last year it crept up to 49 percent .

Really? It only talks of USAmerican's willingness to vote for an atheist. It doesn't suggest there is much less superstition over there.

A great improvement, perhaps. Appalling.

And a majority of republicans,(going solely by these poll numbers) are STILL prejudiced against atheists.

I think Britain ine the 1960s was far less superstitious than the USA is today. It's like the USA is stuck in some crazy time-warp.
