POLL: Pew 08 Candidates and Religion


Via USAToday On Politics, new results from a recent Pew Research Center national survey of 3,002 adults (conducted 8/1 through 8/18 by Schulman, Ronca, & Bucuvalas, Inc.) finds:

  • "The candidates viewed by voters as the least religious among the leading contenders are the current frontrunners for the Democratic and Republican nominations -- Hillary Clinton and Rudy Giuliani, respectively."
  • When rating each Democratic presidential candidate individually, 16% say Sen. Hillary Clinton is "very" religious, 24% say Sen. Barack Obama is, and 28% say former Sen. John Edwards is.
  • When rating each Republican presidential candidate individually, 14% say former Mayor Rudy Giuliani is very religious, 16% say former Sen. Fred Thompson is, 19% say Sen. John McCain is, and 46% say former Gov. Mitt Romney is.

Bob Green:

The only use the Republicans have for religion is to use it as a weapon to promote hate and get out their hate filled base. It's sad really. Jesus and God are clearly Democrats.
