@inaria: 1,000 or so people is about average these days. Insted of a few large polls, they like to take several smaller ones. Less accurate perhaps, but just as effecient.
@patchy: Yeah, Literal Creationists do NOT rank highly on the IQ scale, IMHO.

@5Cats the survey was actually only done on 1,012 individuals. Not really a good proportion, admittedly by the surveyors who noted sampling error and question wording/practical difficulties as adding bias to their results. BUT they do have 95% confidence that the numbers are within +/- 4% of those...
I guess either way still shows that people are clinging to religion too much.
