Most Americans continue to believe Jesus was the son of God and rose from the dead on Easter Sunday.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds 82% of American Adults think the person known to history as Jesus Christ actually walked the Earth 2,000 years ago. Just eight percent (8%) disagree, while 10% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
The survey of 1,000 Adults was conducted on April 16-17, 2014 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.
