(Reuters) – ‘One-third of Americans reject the idea of evolution and Republicans have grown more skeptical about it, according to a poll released on Monday’.

‘Sixty percent of Americans say that “humans and other living things have evolved over time,” the telephone survey by the Pew Research Center’s Religion and Public Life Project showed (Click here for the full survey)’.

‘But 33 percent reject the idea of evolution, saying that “humans and other living things have existed in their present form since the beginning of time,” Pew said in a statement’.

‘Although this percentage remained steady since 2009, the last time Pew asked the question, there was a growing partisan gap on whether humans evolved’.

“The gap is coming from the Republicans, where fewer are now saying that humans have evolved over time,” said Cary Funk, a Pew senior researcher who conducted the analysis’.
