Tom Arcaro, Chris Stephenson, and Duane McClearn are writing a book about their atheist survey from last December.  Preliminary findings are located at https://blogs.elon.edu/servingatheists/

This one made me chuckle:  3,800 people (out of 8,000 surveyed) responded to one of the questions - “How do you view the morality of religious believers compared to the morality of atheists?”

“ . . . a staggering 99.5% of the respondents indicated that atheists were either equally moral or more moral than believers.  Atheists are clearly not neutral in the issue of their morality.  It would appear that whatever misgivings believers have about the morality of atheists, atheists themselves return the sentiment in spades (although no doubt for different reasons)."
