48 Percent Of Americans Believe UFOs Could Be ET Visitations

Nearly half the population believes UFOs could be a sign of extraterrestrial visitation.
HuffPost/YouGov poll reveals that 48 percent of adults in the United States are open to the idea that alien spacecraft are observing our planet -- and just 35 percent outright reject the idea.
The poll was seen as vindication from the community of UFO researchers who often feel they are laughed off by government officials.
"It's always been intriguing to me how we act as though only kooks and quacks and little old ladies in tennis shoes believe in flying saucers. And it's never been true, at least for 30 or 40 years," said former nuclear physicist Stanton Friedman, who was the original civilian investigator of the events surrounding the legendary Roswell, NM, UFO crash of 1947.
Friedman is very outspoken on the idea that some UFOs are intelligently controlled extraterrestrial vehicles.
"The believers are far more quiet, but far more on the side of reality," Friedman told The Huffington Post. "When you look at the polls, it's clear. And I see the benefit of that, personally, because I've only had 11 hecklers in over 700 lectures. I've been out there, all over the place, in every state, 18 other countries, and I know that my audience is more than tolerant -- they're accepting. It's been one of the things that really has kept me going."
In the HuffPost/YouGov poll, conducted between Sept. 6-7, 1,000 adults were asked if they either believed or didn't believe that some people have witnessed UFOs that have an extraterrestrial origin.
When YouGov offered respondents the choice between "slightly disagree," "disagree" and "strongly disagree," those numbers added up to 35 percent who are skeptical of the notion that any UFOs may be alien-related.
However, nearly half of the adults surveyed (48 percent) resounded in the affirmative, leaving 16 percent who indicated that they weren't sure on either side of the ET issue.

  1. Seventy-four percent of Americans believe in the existence of aliens - and 15 million believe that they have actually made contact with extraterrestrials. This March, Science Channel returns with its programming event dedicated to one of mankind's most pressing questions with ARE WE ALONE? - a week-long campaign dedicated to satisfying viewers' appetite for aliens. The week kicks off on Sunday, March 2 at 10 PM ET/PT with the premiere of new episodes of NASA'S UNEXPLAINED FILES, and continues with four more all-new programs including the series CLOSE ENCOUNTERS on Tuesday, March 4 at 10 PM ET/PT and a special premiere episode of THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN on Wednesday, March 5 at 10 PM ET/PT.

    "So many people are obsessed with the existence of aliens," said Debbie Myers, executive vice president and general manager, Science Channel. "ARE WE ALONE? ignites their imaginations with bold new questions, and engages current research happening in the field of extraterrestrial life. It's programming that asks questions and makes you think. We hope ARE WE ALONE? advances the conversation even further."

    ARE WE ALONE? features world-renowned scientists, leading journalists and alien investigators examining compelling accounts of unusual encounters, strange happenings and possible UFO sightings from around the globe.
