This is depressing. It turns out that only 12 percent of Americans think evolution-only should be the way to teach science classes. As Matt Yglesias writes, "The evolution-only view is less popular than gay marriage, less popular than the abolition of the death penalty, and generally speaking one of the very least popular liberal cultural causes."
What can we do about that? I'm not sure. Matt thinks we need to persuade people, but how? The evidence is already there and people are choosing not to be persuaded. Those convinced against their will are of the same opinion still.
