Newsweek Poll:
Most Americans Believe in Miracles
Newsweek, May 1, 2000

An overwhelming majority of Americans believe that God performs miracles and nearly half say they have personally seen or experienced one, according to a new Newsweek poll.

Eighty-four percent of Americans said that God performs miracles. Seventy-nine percent say they believe that the miracles described in the Bible actually took place, according to the Newsweek poll. Sixty-three percent say they know someone who claims to have experienced a miracle, and 48 percent believe they have experienced or witnessed one.

It is overwhelmingly Christians (90%) who believe in miracles, compared to 46 percent of non-Christians. Faith in miracles among Evangelical Protestants is 98 percent. And 87 percent of those polled said that miracles can happen to people of religious faiths different than their own.

About two-thirds of Americans (67%) say they have prayed for a miracle. Strong majorities of Americans believe God or the saints cure or heal sick people who have been given no chance of survival by medical doctors (77%). People who face death in accidents or natural disasters can be saved by a miracle, say 72 percent of those polled.

The poll data appears as part of a new Newsweek story on miracles, available on newsstands Monday and online on Newsweek.com on Sunday. Religion Editor Kenneth L. Woodward provides accounts of modern-day miracles and profiles the role of miracles in each of the world’s leading religions.
