DemDaily: Religion & Political Preferences

February 26, 2016

Although conventional wisdom holds that someone who is not religious cannot be elected president of the United States, religious groups rarely vote for one candidate as a unified bloc.

Their voting patterns are more distinct, however, when it comes to ideology and political party affiliation.

and the Presidential Candidates?

Ben Carson: Seventh Day Adventist
Ted Cruz: Southern Baptist Hillary Clinton: Methodist
John Kasich: Anglican (converted from Catholic)

Marco Rubio: Roman Catholic
Bernie Sanders: Judaism Donald Trump: Presbyterian

Where do you fall, if at all?
