So, I don’t know about you, but going to church has been a lot less interesting now that everyone is behind Gov. Romney. Even my friends who seemed to be the most opposed to supporting him are now actually enthusiastic about him. (Or at the very least are becoming more so.) Of course, we have been saying all along that very religious voters will favor Gov. Romney and, according to The Christian Post, that’s exactly what’s happening:
Fifty-four percent of registered voters categorized as “very religious” said they are currently supporting Romney, while 37 percent said they would vote for Obama, in the presidential race. Among the “moderately religious,” 54 percent support Obama and 40 percent support Romney. Among the “nonreligious” Obama’s support is even greater, 61 percent, while Romney gets only 30 percent.
Voters are more closely split when comparing Catholics and Protestants. Protestants favor Romney, a Latter-day Saint, 48 to 43 percent. Catholics favor Obama, a Protestant, 51 to 45 percent.
Among “very religious” Catholics, though, the advantage tilts to Romney, 50 to 46 percent. The gap is even wider among “very religious” Protestants, who favor Romney 54 to 35 percent. When factoring in race and ethnicity, the gap becomes wider still. Romney has a 41 percentage point advantage (64 to 23 percent) among very religious non-Hispanic white Protestants.
