Silk Looks at Religious Voting Patterns

At RNS, Mark Silk takes a quick look at the voting behavior of different religious groups. Catholics, once again, "went with the winner." What is most surprising is that Gov. Romney received a higher share of the white evangelical vote than John McCain did four years ago. Concerns about his Mormon faith did not materialize at the voting booth, and that is a good thing for the country.
