The American People

A number of public opinion polls are touting themselves and their results this week, including one from Pew Research. One of their findings--extracted from a long survey about Americans' attitudes about the future and presented on the CNN crawl--should put many other opinions in perspective:

41% of American surveyed expect the Second Coming of Jesus Christ within the next forty years.

This is actually down slightly from 1999, when 44% expected it.
