CNSNews.com reports that just two weeks after U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb in Madison, Wis., ruled that the annual National Day of Prayer that's existed for 59 years is unconstitutional, 92 percent of Americans told the USA Today/Gallup poll that they believe in God and only 5 percent said they oppose the National Day of Prayer:

The day was first created by Congress in 1952, and is being observed this year on May 6 pursuant to a declaration made last week by President Barack Obama.

On May 1-2, the USA Today/Gallup poll asked more than 1,000 American adults this question: "As you may know, in 1952 Congress designated a National Day of Prayer, which will be held May 6 this year. Do you favor or oppose having a National Day of Prayer, or doesn't it matter to you either way?"

Fifty-seven percent said they favor holding a National Day of Prayer, 38 percent said it did not matter to them, 5 percent said they opposed it, and 1 percent said they had no opinion.
