From the article: If to many FREEPERS the religious makeup of the GoP candidate didn't matter, why is it of sudden interest what the religious make-up of certain voter demographics did -- or didn't -- do?

Not important.

This thread just seeks to blame evangelicals (or whoever) for a fail because Romney was a Mormon.

This threads starter does not wish to acknowledge voter fraud.

Religion is about ideas - even if it’s ideas about the spiritual.

This was a purely materialistic, identity based, color-or-lady-parts election.

It’s not time for intra-finger-pointing from anyone. It’s time to recognize that demographics and identity are King in the US, as they are in the rest of the West. That was inevitable, if early in arriving, and is only going to grow.

This incarnation of liberty is over. That’s not a sad thing ... it’s what happens. The question is what’s next.

U.S.: Catholics split fifty fifty between Republicans and Democrats.

Naturally, from a voting point of view, this fact should be read in light of one determining factor: religious practice. Catholics and Protestants who go to church every week chose Romney over Obama with a difference of 20%, whereas the Democratic candidate was 25% ahead in terms of the votes gained from individuals who practiced their faith less regularly.

I heard today that Obama took 64% of the Jewish vote. I guess it’s time for me to quit being concerned about the fate of Israel since they seem ok with their choice for our ally relationship.

Per Pew Forum, only 12% of the voting pool was religiously unaffiliated...and these voted Obama 70-26%.

------------------------------------

Blame the atheists!!

70%-26% = 44% x 12% of the electorate = 5.3% of the popular vote. More than enough to swing the election to Zero.

Lets stop with the “demographics” b/s

Romney ran a “Johnny One Note Campaign”. Used a poison dart blow gun when he should have used a cannon loaded with grape shot because he had pleanty of stuff he could fill that cannon barrel with..

They failed to hammer away on what will happen when Obama gets returned; The Obama 2013/14 Tax Increases. The impact of Obama’s energy policies..(a socialist construct never branded as such) and a bread and butter issue which reaches into every “demographics” pocketbook...The impact of Supreme Court(snip)

It’s interesting to note that neither presidential ticket featured a white protestant. Mitt is, of course, Mormon and Ryan is catholic as is Joe Biden.

However, it’s disingenuous to think Romney’s faith didn’t play a role. Just think back to the daily diatribe of anti-Mormon articles and vanities posted here every day during the primaries.

Also, I find this surprising, although it has little to do with the topic at hand, but the U.S. Supreme Court is comprised entirely of catholics and jews. There are no protestants sitting on the court.
