Number of Christians in the U.S. Declining

The number of Americans identifying themselves as Christian is declining, while other religious affiliations are slightly increasing, according to a recent survey.

The Pew Research Center looked at more than 35,000 Americans over the age of 18. More than 70 percent affiliated themselves with Christianity, a nearly 8 percent drop from 2007. 

Still, that's nearly three-fourths of the population, so it remains the largest religion in the U.S.

One of the reasons attributed to this Christianity decline is due to the number of people describing themselves as Catholic and mainline Protestant both decreased from 2007 to 2014. 

While the majority of religious branches falling under Christianity decreased, the number of people describing themselves as Jehovah's Witnesses increased just slightly, from 0.7 percent to 0.8 percent. [More fround Newsy]
