In “I was almost abducted by aliens” (Discover, Greg Laden’s blog, June 30, 2012), Laden tells us,
National Geographic Channel has run a poll in which they found that 36% of Americans “believe UFO’s exist.” This is in line with previous results. …

From National Geographic,
The national poll measured different views on extraterrestrials, and found that 36 percent, or more than one-third, of Americans believe UFOs exist. In fact, 11 percent (more than one in 10) are sure they have seen a UFO with their own eyes, while 20 percent (one in five) know someone who claims to have seen a flying saucer.
