An evolution poll is a means of determining the popularity of the belief in evolution. A number of polls have shown that people are more likely to reject the theory of evolution than creationism.

In 2001:

"Gallup polls have shown that about 45 percent of Americans believe God created living things in their present form a few thousand years ago; about 40 percent believe that things evolved over a long time with God’s guidance; while only a little more than 10 percent accept Darwin’s theory that things evolved through unguided natural selection and random variations."[1]

In 2007:

A USA Today/Gallup poll taken on June 1-3, 2007 listed 18 per cent of the population as accepting evolution as "probably true" and 28 percent rejecting evolution as "probably false."[2]
