Last week Public Policy Polling, a left-leaning North Carolina polling organization, released the results of several polls mostly relating to Americans’ perception of Congress. However one group of questions engaged Americans’ current feelings toward God, if “it” exists:
“Though not the most popular figure PPP has polled, if God exists, voters are prepared to give it good marks. Voters approve of God’s performance by 52-9 margin, making God about as popular as Murdock is unpopular. When asked to evaluate God on some of the issues it is responsible for, voters give God its best rating on creating the universe, 71-5.
They also approve of its handling of the animal kingdom 56-11, and even its handling of natural disasters 50-13. Young voters are prepared to be more critical of God on natural disasters with those 18-29 rating it 59-26 compared to 47-12 among those over 65.”
Forty percent of those surveyed answered not sure to, “If God exists, do you approve or disapprove of its performance?”
Nine hundred and twenty-eight Americans were surveyed for the study between July 15 and 17, with a margin of error at +/-3.2 percent. The same press release showed John Boehner had an approval rate of 33 percent, the same as the rest of Congress. However, more Americans were unsure of Boehner’s performance while much more were disapproving of the performance of the legislative branch as a whole.
