America is still overwhelmingly Christian, according to a new survey.

The Public Religion Research Institute has released its latest snapshot of the American religious landscape with data from 2020. It shows that America is still majority Christian, and that, despite shrill voices of the most aggrieved, Americans broadly enjoy healthy religious liberty.

Overall, America is still overwhelmingly Christian. Only 5.75 percent of Americans practice a religion other than Christianity. The second-largest belief system is not a religion at all. More than 23 percent of Americans are “Nones” or religiously unaffiliated, meaning they check “None of the above” when asked to identify their faith from a list.
