The Gallup Poll has recently updated its audit of American?s beliefs in a variety of occult phenomena. The results suggest a significant increase in belief in a number of these experiences over the last decade, particulary in haunted houses and ghosts. Only devil possession has shown a drop in belief since 1990. Half or more of Americans believe in psychic or spiritual healing and ESP and a third or more believe in extraterrestrial visitations.
Here are some of the results of that poll. The replies are listed in percentages according to ?Believe/ Not Sure/ Don?t Believe.?
