Some polling data on evolution

Some new polling data on the lack of acceptance of evolution.

The Discovery Institute is [touting]( a poll that they commissioned from Zogby which claims that 52% of the American public believe that "the development of life was guided by intelligent design."

An [Ipsos/Mori poll]( in the UK shows that only 33% of the American public thinks that "scientific evidence for evolution exists". This compares with 51% in Britain and 8% in Egypt. While the poll considered additional countries, over at _[a simple prop]( I've tabulated results for Britain, the US and Eqypt (as a representative Muslim country) and made some comments on the issue of theistic evolution. Leave comments there or here (though I will probably not be reading the thread here).
