Religious, But What About Spiritual?

So Gallup has a finger on the pulse of American religious identification.

Mississippi has the country’s highest percentage of African-Americans, who are known for being the most religious group.

“Most people say that’s the reason why the state is the highest,” (Frank Newport, editor-in-chief) said, “but even people in Mississippi with no religious identity are more religious than people in Vermont who are religious.”

I wonder if that contributed to Mr Santorum’s apocalyptic lily-white Obamaville. A 2014 less religious because it’s all white folks.

For their next poll, I’d like to see how Americans identify as spiritual. More or less.
