• According to a national survey of over a thousand Americans conducted December 25-26 by a ScottRasmussen.com and HarrisX polling, 37% of Americans say it’s ‘very likely’ there’s life somewhere else in the galaxy. 22% believe it’s ‘very likely’ that lifeforms from other planets have visited the Earth in the past. And 11% believe that people from other planets are living on Earth today.
• More men (45%) than women (29%) believe extraterrestrial life is very likely. Younger Americans are more likely than their elders to believe there is life elsewhere in the galaxy. Among adults under 35, 41% believe that it is ‘very likely’. There are few differences to be found along the lines of income and education, however.
