Vote devided on issue of religion

I thought this was rather interesting simply to see the breakdown of religion across the country....

President Bush (news - web sites)'s victory, the approval of every anti-gay marriage amendment on statewide ballots and an emphasis on 'moral values' among voters showed the power of churchgoing Americans in this election.

I'm confused. He carried the Catholic vote but all the Kerry areas are Catholic here, except the blue in the middle went for Bush too. What am I missing in this correlation?

The map is definately interesting to see the demographics. I'm surprised by WA state. The southern border areas are less surprising to be catholic. Mormon was a gimme.

He got 52% of the Catholic vote.

i dont see much correlation either. it looks like Bush won most of the protestant states except Minnesota. He also won some Catholic but Kerry won more.


i didnt realize mormonism stretched that far

CRAP!

It shows Washington as predominately Catholic and we are definately predominately nothing.

I suspect that the "not really religous" crowd got thrown into the "what religion did your parents believe" group.

We just want to have sex with 15 year old brace faced babes....that's all.

The more I stare at this, the less correllation I see, other than Kerry only winning a couple of mainly "Protestant" states.

And yeah, as kvrdave points out, this map says nothing of the irreligious, which WA and OR are primarily.

I'm surprised by the map. I can only speak to the Southeast Michigan or Metro Detroit area which they assert is dominantly Catholic. Based on the size and number of Protestant churches compared to Catholic churches in the area, that just doesn't seem very reasonable. The Protestant churches seem sized to their congregations, and the Catholics must be packed into their churchs like sardines. Certainly the statistics for people who "frequently" attend church would have to be different.

How did Hispanics vote?

I haven't seen anything other than that Bush received 11 points more in 2004 than he got in 2000.

I can't remember what percentage he got in 2000.

There is actually some argument going on over this, as two different exit polls are showing two drastically different results.




edited to add:

In 2000 the President received 35% of Hispanic support. This election that number increased to 44% of the vote.



The dispute I mentioned seems to center on whether or not urban Hispanics were polled in according numbers.
