Most Americans Believe In Angels


Those heavenly hosts we sing about at Christmastime remain a real presence for the majority of Americans, and nearly all Christians, who believe in angels.

An Associated Press poll conducted this month found that at least three in four adults think angels exist.
Belief levels were highest among evangelicals (95 percent) and those attending religious services weekly (94 percent).
And it’s not just angels, either. America’s one of the most religious developed nations and we have an inkling for the supernatural of all kinds, it seems.
Back in 2009, about half of the population had undergone a mystical experience, and a quarter professed belief in astrology, according to a survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.
