Americans' belief in God has remained steady throughout the 60-plus years that Gallup has asked the question.
Its latest poll showed that 92 percent of Americans said they believe in God. The survey also revealed that 12 percent believe in a "universal spirit or higher power instead of God" when given that option.
The age group least likely to profess a belief is 18- to 29-year-olds, of whom 16 percent claimed no such belief.
