Republicans are more active churchgoers, Gallup poll finds

Catholic World News - November 09, 2011

Republican voters are more likely than the general American population to attend church services regularly, according to a new Gallup Poll survey. Most Democrats, on the other hand, rarely or never go to church.

The Gallup survey found that 43% of those who identify themselves with the Republican Party report attending church services on a regular weekly basis, while another 20% attend at least monthly. For the overall population, 33% go to church weekly and 20% monthly. Among Democrats the figures drop to 27% and 20%, with a 52% majority saying that they rarely or never go to church.

The Gallup study found that Republican voters were more likely to be married and to live in households with higher incomes.
