    The Pew Research poll is the most reliable

    Since 1990, the fraction of Americans with no religious affiliation has nearly tripled, from about 8 percent to 22 percent. Over the next 20 years, this trend will accelerate: by 2020, there will be more of these "Nones" than Catholics, and by 2035, they will outnumber Protestants. The following figure shows changes since 1972 and these predictions, based on data from the General Social Survey (GSS):

    And other than that you like the result more, what basis do you have for that statement?

    No, it wasn't an attempt at humor. It's been my experience that most Americans who claim to be Christian don't actually practice Christianity. They are merely social Christians. While they might celebrate nominally Christian holidays, they don't attend church services.

    By that definition, I am a Christian. As an ex-Christian, however, I know firsthand the difference between claiming a religion and practicing one.
