A recent I&I/TIPP poll found that a majority of Americans agree that religion is under attack in America, today.

The poll asked, “Do you agree or disagree with the statement “religion is under attack in the U.S.?”

“Among those responding, 52% said they agree, while 40% said they disagree. About 9% said they weren’t sure (numbers don’t add to 100% due to rounding),” Issues and Insights reported.

It will come as no surprise, perhaps, that those most convinced that religion is under attack in the U.S. are those who self-describe as Conservative. Some 76% agreed with the statement, while just 21% disagreed.

Just 34% of self-described Liberals, on the other hand, believed that religion was under attack, while 60% disagreed.

Moderates, as is often the case, stood somewhere in the middle, with a plurality of 48% agreeing and 42% disagreeing.

These data by political ideology are mirrored by party affiliation. Democrats (43% “agree”, 49% “disagree) are mostly skeptical, while Republicans (74% vs. 21%) and Independents (45% vs. 43%) mostly agree.

Only people under 24 think that religion is not under attack. “Among those 18-24, just 40% say religion has come under attack, while 52% disagree,” the poll found.

The Democrat Party has been stepping up its attacks on Christianity, in particular, and the poll’s respondents seem acutely aware of this fact.
