"Republican presidential nominee Sen. John McCain by a margin of 50 to 40 percent, while those who say religion is unimportant to their lives tend to support presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama by a margin of 55 to 36 percent.

About two-thirds of the registered voters surveyed by Gallup said that religion is important to them."

Using those numbers on a sample of 1500 people would result in the following:

McCain 45.3%
Obama 45.0%

Although Gallup is not the greatest; I trust it much more than the Barna poll.

I love you math and statistics guys. Thanks for your brainwork.

So then it would seem that this poll would fall in line with all the predictions that this is going to be a close election.

Secretly, however, I pray for a McCain landslide. He’s not the greatest conservative, but he’s sooooooooo much better than Obamanation.
