Gallup: Religion losing influence in public life?

A couple days ago, Gallup posted the results of a study in which they asked the public whether religion was gaining/losing influence in American life. According to the results, 67% of adults believe that religion is waning in influence while 27% believe that its influence is gaining - a number continuing the downward trend since early 2005. Read the link for a more thorough analysis.

To the religious haters out there, please note:
... this measure of public perceptions about religion has been quite volatile over the forty-plus years of its existence, with shifts in perception often corresponding to major political events.
Economy anyone?
