What are your views on ghosts, demons and vampires ? Image Credit: PD - cocoparisienne
A new YouGov poll has revealed how many Americans believe in the existence of supernatural beings.
With Halloween fast approaching, British market research and data analytics firm YouGov decided to ask members of the public what they thought about ghosts, demons and other paranormal entities.

The results indicated that 45% of Americans subscribe to the notion that ghosts and demons either "definitely exist" or "probably exist", however belief in vampires was significantly less at only 13%.

Slightly more overall - a total of 46% - believed in some sort of supernatural being with the extra 1% presumably believing in some other type of paranormal entity that was not specifically listed in the poll.
YouGov has also listed the results based on the political views of the participants.

The results suggested that Republicans were far more likely to believe in supernatural beings than Democrats, with 54% vs 37% for demons, 46% vs 41% for ghosts and 14% vs 8% for vampires.

Overall, 50% of Republicans believed in some sort of supernatural being vs 41% for Democrats.

You didn't "pretty it up", which is a better selling point to me. Too often we get the typical outlandish and exaggerated tales.

Most Christian sects believe that all supernatural occurrence is evil trying to undermine God through distraction from Him.

I wonder if there is a culture on the planet that does not have stories about ghosts or demons?  Anybody know of one?

True. And most dont believe in ghosts. Most believe a person's soul goes to heaven or hell, but never just hangs around. I think these numbers are besides a belief in religion, though I'd suspect some correlation anyway.

This is an experience I still can't explain by normal means So I used to live in a unit with my mum and brother. Once afternoon we were in the kitchen; he was cooking and I was talking to him. When we both heard something hit the ground from the laundry (sliding door that leads to the laundry is next to the oven and was open), before we had a chance to see what I was I looked down and saw a tub of washing detergent (5 liter tub of Cold Power which was roughly half full) at my feet. Now I know for a fact that previously it was on top of the washing machine (about 9 feet from me). The washing ma... [More]
