Well the majority is Christian. But the beauty of America is that there is no set religion. Freedom of worship is amazing and just makes America an even more diverse country. So I wouldn't say that Christianity is the religion if America because there isn't one. All of them are.
Christianity is the major religion of America. This is because over 74% of Americans are Christians while the rest are Muslims, Jewish while others are non-religious. This is because there is freedom of worship in this continent.
Formally, there is no "religion of America". In the political arena it is most common to openly present what is essentially a "deist" non specific god. E.G. "in God We Trust" and "one nation under God". Another answer is that the "religion" of America is a partial democracy. In other words it's government and political system together with the constitution and ideals of "inalienable rights" are it's pseudo-religion. Not meaning to be controversial.

America has NO religion; but Americans do. A nation can neither be Religious, nor Atheist -- a nation is incapable of having opinions upon these subjects. A nation is a corporation. To repeat a familiar saying, "a corporation has no soul." There can be no such thing as "Christian Corporation".
Of course it is admitted that the majority of citizens composing a nation may believe or disbelieve, and call the nation what they please. But, truth is that the Constitution of the United States is secular. It declares that "all governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed" -- not from gods. There is nothing in the Constitution of America with which any God has anything to do, whatever, or to justify any religious pertinence.
In 1776 our fathers endeavored to retire the gods from politics. And they rightly divorced the church from the state upon principle. The Constitution of America has no room for a national superstition -- no room for patriotic gods or supernatural beings -- and does away with the burden of religious bigotry. A constitution without a god and free from religion has given America a nation without a slave.
Americas religion is 'freedom of...' Very diverse. There is no government endorsed religious affiliation. The top five in order are Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddist, Hindu. All three Abrahamic religions ate at the top.
Well, the founding fathers were Christian, and founded it one the Christian principles, but they organized it so that all religions were welcome in America. I'd say Christianity is the "main religion," or the most majority.
I don't believe the United States is a Christian nation. Not in its philosophy, or in what it loves, or in what it does. Despite its Judeo-Christian roots and heritage, and the beliefs of some of its founders, the United States today is a nation that follows other gods, and lives a lifestyle that is not compatible with Christianity.
The United States is a secular nation founded on secular principles inspired by the Age of Enlightenment. Statistically, the population of the United States over-overwhelmingly identifies as Christian.
