Public Policy Polling asked Americans, "If God exists, do you approve or disapprove of its performance?"
God didn't do too well with 52% approving of God's job performance, 9% disapproving and 40% unsure.
The poll, which surveyed 928 people, was part of a larger survey of American's approval of members of Congress.
The deity fared a bit better on other matters. For instance, when asked to rate God on the creation of the universe, 71% of voters approved and only 5% disapproved.
As to God's governance of the animal kingdom, 56% approved and 11% disapproved.
For an all loving, all-knowing presence, God's approval rating was quite dismal. But the invisible deity was generally more liked than U.S. politicians. House Speaker John Boehner, and both Republicans and Democrats in Congress, all came in with a 33% approval rating. President Obama's approval rating was not measured in the Public Policy Polling survey, but Real Clear Politics says the president has a 46% approval rating.
Raw Story says that the questions posed by Public Policy Polling are questionable, citing a recent poll published by the organization that said that 44% of Republicans thought that President Obama would not be taken to heaven in the rapture and that 37% were not sure.
Rabbi Shmuley Boteach told CNN that he was surprised that God's approval rating was so high, especially given recent natural disasters that God supposedly could have prevented. He said that there is a tendency among the faithful to defend God at all costs.
