I do not, and will not ever associate myself with evolution or intelligent design. I am a Christian, I believe God created the universe, earth, the plants, the animals, and the ecosystems for each one. And that He has a purpose for each and every organism on this planet and others out there in the universe if there are such.
And going back to the OP's fact that you are surprised that only 39% of those in schools believe in Evolution. Think about this. When I was in 9th grade, my BIOLOGY teacher was a dead-on Christian, and even though he did not believe in what he was teaching, didn't stop him from following curriculum. He told us all at the beginning of the year, that he was only teaching what he was told to, and that those of us who disagreed with the teachings, did not have to participate.
You want to know the amount of us in the class who actually stood up for what we believed in, and indeed almost got failed because our teacher still graded by normal standards even though he disagreed himself? 6 of us, out of the 28 in that class. I still never found out if anyone else in the class besides those 6, including myself who stood up for our faith(we all almost failed because we did stand firm in what we believed) just lied about their faith, or just were ignorant and acted as if it didn't bother them just to get a perfect grade.
My point is, those facts about the 39% may be off. Whether it be greater in the Evolution percentage, or the other percentage is beyond me. But what I'm saying is. As sad as it makes me, it's true. Not all of us who disagree with the theories of Evolution, Intelligent Design, and whatnot-else, actually speak up for it.
