End of an Error

A new Gallup Poll finds that Republicans who say they don't believe in evolution outnumber those who do by more than two to one. Some 68 percent of Republicans polled doubt that evolution occurred while only 30 percent find the scientific evidence convincing.

On the other hand, Democrats who believe in evolution outnumber those who don't by 57 to 40 percent. Independents also support evolution by a wide margin, some 61 to 37 percent.

The convergence of opinion between Democrats and independents on this issue and others, such as public support for the war in Iraq, mean that the long reign of error in the country may be coming, at long last, to an end.
