Where do Americans Fall on Nye/Ham Debate?

Bill Nye, the Science Guy, and Ken Ham (a best-selling Christian author and president/CEO of "Answers in Genesis" (AiG), debated evolution and creationism last night. Where do most Americans fall on that debate?

The Pew Research for Religion and Public Life asked that question last year. You'll see, for example that 64%  of white evangelical Protestants believe that humans have existed in their present form since the beginning of time.
