Democrats are more godless than ever as a new survey finds that religious identification among the left-wing party has crashed 20 points in 20 years.

A Gallup poll recently reported that in 1999, 60 percent of Democrats self-identified as religious. But today, that number has crashed 23 points and only 37 percent claim to be religious.

“During that time, the percentage of Democrats identifying as spiritual but not religious has increased 14 points, while the percentage saying they are neither has tripled,” Gallup reported.

On the other hand, the survey added that “there has been no meaningful change in Republicans’ self-identification as religious or spiritual,” and independents have only experienced a modest change. Among Republicans, 61 percent identify as religious compared to 62 percent in 1999, and 28 percent say they are spiritual compared to 25 percent previously.

Meanwhile, independents have become a bit less likely to consider themselves to be “spiritual” (37 percent in 1999 to 32 percent today). But they are a bit less likely to say they are neither religious nor spiritual (from 13 percent to 21 percent).

The survey reported that 47 percent of Americans identify as religious, 33 percent say they are “spiritual,” and two percent say they are both. Also, 18 percent say they are neither, which is twice the proportion Gallup measured in 1999.

“Over the same period, the percentage identifying as religious has declined by seven percentage points,” the survey said.

“The decline in Americans identifying as religious is consistent with the trends for other Gallup measures of religiosity and religious practice, particularly in the past two decades. However, Gallup has documented steeper declines in formal religious practice (church attendance and church membership) than in belief in God and prayer,” the report said.
