Gallup on Evangelicals

The latest Nation’s Pulse from the Gallup organization has some interesting comments on the number of Evangelicals in America:

How many evangelicals are there in the United States? Since no one can agree on a definition of exactly who is and isn’t an evangelical, the answer to that question is essentially unknowable. Gallup analysis puts the number somewhere in the 20% range, but other estimates have been as low as 7% of the adult population.

Are evangelicals increasing or decreasing? Are the mega churches attracting/converting new believers or just draining smaller churchs of their flock? Outside of their supposed impact on the US electorate, what impact are evangelicals having on US society – and what impact should they be having? Lots of questions – in need of answers.
