Mike Pence and Young Earth Science (YES)

What does Mike Pence think about Young Earth Science (YES)?  In this video Pence gives his views on evolution.  He also says he agrees with the signers of the Declaration of Independence on origins.  What might that imply?

Ben Franklin signed the Declaration of Independence:
We can also see from Franklin's "Poor Richard" almanac that he supported YES - the view that history and science favors a youthful world:
Mollie Reilly (Deputy Politics Editor - Huffington Post) has also written on Pence and evolution.  She points out that the scientific community widely accepts Darwin's history of life as factual.  But this completely overlooks the impact of worldview and bias in science. [1]  It would have been helpful if she had provided a reference and more detail on this point.

Many take evolution as implying atheism.  What are the chances that Mollie Reilly is one?  One in five - roughly 20% of journalists are atheists according to a survey by the American Society of Newspaper Editors. [2]  If 82% of journalists denied the existence of a Prime Mover, does that make it true?  The same goes for scientists - they're human too.  Only 3% of the general population are atheist.

Friedrich Nietzsche (d. 1900) known for his "God is dead" philosophy actually opposed mainstream evolution and has a section in Will to Power opposing Darwin:

Against Darwinism. - The utility of an organ does not explain its origin; on the contrary!  For most of the time during which a property is forming it does not preserve the individual and is of no use to him, least of all in the struggle with external circumstances and enemies. [3]
