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.
