Do Americans think religion is losing its influence on life in the U.S.? What do active-duty members of the military think about Barack Obama as commander in chief?
 

Two-thirds of Americans think religion is “losing its influence” on life in the U.S., a sharp jump from just three years ago, when Americans were evenly split on the question. 67% now think religious influence is waning, while just 27% say it is increasing.
Gallup
