According to recent surveys, the number of people who attend church has dropped in the US. Also, the general belief in God has decreased.
The coronavirus pandemic in China accelerated these trends. According to reports, the number of people attending church decreased by about 45 percent during the pandemic. This led to the closures of several churches and businesses.
A survey conducted in the summer by the Gallup organization revealed that the belief in God had gone down to an all time low. It also noted that leftists and young individuals were the most likely to doubt God.

As Breitbart News reported at the time:
In 1953, 1954, and 1965, almost a hundred percent of the respondents said they believed in God, as reported by Gallup.
The percentage of Americans who believe in God has gone down to its lowest level ever recorded in the survey. In 2011, over 90% of the country's adults said they believed in God. However, since then, the number of people who believe in God has continuously dropped. In 2014, the figure was at 86 percent.
A report from the Hill revealed that about a quarter of Americans don't consider themselves religious. This percentage is in line with the overall decline in the belief in God.
A different analysis conducted in 2021 revealed that 69 percent of Americans identify with a Christian faith. On the other hand, a quarter of Americans stated that they don't consider themselves religious.
A different study conducted in 2022 by the American Life Research revealed that the younger generations are more likely to avoid religious practices. About a third of Gen Z, or 34 percent, do not consider themselves religious. This figure drops to 29 percent for millennials, 24 percent for Gen X, 18 percent for Baby Boomers, and 9 percent for the Silent Generation.
The American Survey Center noted that the number of people joining church has decreased over the years among political left-wingers.
According to the report, the number of left-wingers who belong to religious organizations has decreased from 57 percent in 1998 to 35 percent last year.
A different analysis conducted in 2021 by the Gallup organization revealed that a quarter of Americans believe that religion is not very important in their world.
