i don't know where the 46%

i don't know where the 46% figure came from or how the statistic is declining. i tried to look on gallup's website, and the only relavent thing i found was " http://www.gallup.com/poll/2416/six-ten-americans-read-bible-least-occas... ]Six in Ten Americans Read Bible at Least Occasionally " from 2000, which says: "...the percentage of frequent readers, that is, those who read the Bible at least once a week, has decreased slightly over the last decade, from 40% in 1990 to 37% today."

anyway, here's the e100 website with a few more details about the program:
