How the Faithful Voted

How the Faithful Voted

A new survey conducted by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life finds that nearly every religious group provided President-elect Barack Obama with equal or higher levels of support compared to the 2004 Democratic nominee, John Kerry. Based on findings from the survey, How the Faithful Voted found that the Democrats' largest gains (8 percent) were seen among those who say they are unaffiliated with any particular religion, while Catholic support for Democrats jumped 7 percent and support among Protestants rose 5 percent.
