A recent Rasmussen poll shows the Bible Belt living up to its name.
According to an Aug. 26th survey, 75% of those surveyed in Arkansas believe the Bible is literally true. That ties for tops in the nation with Alabama.
"In Arkansas, the question proves to be one of the rare ones that doesn’t cause divisions along party lines; 83% of Republicans and 75% of Democrats say the believe in the Bible’s literal truth. Seventy-nine percent (79%) of women and 69% of men identify themselves as true believers," according to the Rasmussen report.
In Vermont and Massachusetts, only 22% of those respondents believe the Bible is literally true—the lowest percentages in all states surveyed.
