Gallup: 18% of Americans believe the Sun revolves around the Earth.

(via Ben Smith, in the context of a discussion that perhaps 10% of Americans thinking Obama's a Muslim is not really that high.)

And yes, that poll's from 1999, but that's still 450 years after Copernicus. Four hundred and fifty. Half a millenium.
