According to a 2005 Gallup survey, three out of four Americans believe in at least one type of paranormal entity. The most common belief (41 percent of respondents) is in extrasensory perception, or ESP, followed closely by haunted houses and visits by ghosts and spirits of the dead. Twenty-four percent of respondents said they believe extra-terrestrial beings have stopped by our planet at some point.
