I suggest this is a localized observation and/or it depends on who you consider to be evangelical and who considers themselves evangelical. For instance in a parallel thread we have been discussing the apologetics conference at the link below which is a who's who in evangelical circles and the only thing in common among all of them is that they all reject evolution except possibly Colson. In my neck of the woods it is very rare to find anyone who terms themselves an evangelical that accepts evolution. I am still glad to hear the report though.

I am not at all surprised by this survey's results.  It has been my perception that evangelical theologians - particularly Hebrew and Old Testament Scholars - has been increasingly outspoken that there is no necessary conflict between evolutionary science and a faithful reading of scripture.  This is true of theologians who have personal reservations or doubts about the validity of biological evolution (particularly as it concerns humans) - Henri Blocher and J.I. Packer come to mind here.    However, once it is recognized that scripture does not demand a rejection of biological evolution, then that person is open to persuasion by the scientific evidence.
