Are Atheists 26% of the U.S. Population?

I recently came across, after first hearing about it on a couple of podcasts, a new study out of the University of Kentucky, concluding that 26% of the US population are Atheists although when directly asked, the numbers are much lower.  Are there far more Atheists out there who are just afraid to be open about it?  If so, that’s a wonderful thing to hear!  It gives me hope for the future of this country and a government that will one day govern on true secular values.  Here’s a link to an article on this that also includes other links for more info if you so desire.
