I notice this thread discusses a Gallup Poll, while the others concern a similar Barna Poll. I had posted a thread that covered the Barna numbers, and also mentioned the different spins put on those numbers. You can see that thread here.
BARNA (1003 polled):
61% McCain, 17% Obama: Evangelicals
28% McCain, 44% Obama: nominal Christians
29% McCain, 39% Obama: Catholics
32% McCain, 43% Obama: Protestants
24% McCain, 56% Obama: "faiths other than Christianity"
17% McCain, 55% Obama: atheists and agnostics
GALLUP (95,000 polled):
("religion is important" group)
53% McCain, 37% Obama: Catholic non-Hispanic whites
31% McCain, 57% Obama: Catholic Hispanic
63% McCain, 27% Obama: Christian "non Catholic"
28% McCain, 61% Obama: no specific religion
("religion is not important" group)
45% McCain, 47% Obama: Catholic non-Hispanic whites
30% McCain, 63% Obama: Catholic Hispanic
46% McCain, 45% Obama: Christian "non Catholic"
26% McCain, 65% Obama: no specific religion
I remember taking a course in statistics many years ago, One of the text books was called, How To Lie With Statistics.
Since than I have taken all polls with a grain of salt.
The only guy I would be willing to believe is Michael Barone. That man is a walkin', talkin encyclopedia.
What’s it about Hispanics that they like Obama enough not to see the wolve in sheep’s clothing?
