Most Americans still believe that Jesus Christ rose from the dead, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll. The national telephone survey found that 64 percent of American adults believe Jesus rose from the dead, while 19 percent reject the central Christian tenet of the resurrection. Seventeen percent said they were not sure. The survey of 1,000 adults was conducted on March 23-24, 2013; the margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence.
