Gallup: Republicans Remain Disproportionately White and Religious

Discussion in 'Politics & Religion' started by hermit, Sep 2, 2010.

  1. About 9 out of 10 Republicans are non-Hispanic whites, and more than half of these are highly religious. That compares with 62% of the Democratic rank-and-file that is white and largely less religious, with blacks and Hispanics making up a much more substantial part of that party's base.


    These results are based on aggregated data from more than 220,000 Americans surveyed from early January through Aug. 15 of this year as part of Gallup Daily tracking. Whites classified as highly religious are those who say religion is important in their daily lives and who report attending religious services weekly or almost every week. Hispanics include everyone who identifies as Hispanic, regardless of race.

    The mixture of religion and politics in the United States came to the fore again this past weekend at Glenn Beck's high-visibility "Restoring Honor" rally in Washington, D.C. Beck mentioned God and religion frequently in his remarks. The rally was billed as nonpolitical, but the presence of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Beck's involvement with the politically oriented Tea Party movement, and Beck's own avowedly conservative persona and positions on the issues brought a political perspective to the event.

    Gallup Daily tracking data reviewed in this analysis confirm that religion, along with race, is a significant factor in defining Republicans, independents, and Democrats. Eighty-eight percent of Republicans are white, compared with 71% of independents and 62% of Democrats. The majority of white Republicans are highly religious, while the substantial majority of white Democrats are less religious.

    All in all, 47% of Republicans in the U.S. today can be classified as highly religious whites, compared with 24% of independents and 19% of Democrats.


    Americans who identify as Republicans in America today, particularly those who identify as conservative Republicans, are disproportionately likely to be highly religious whites, in contrast with both the population as a whole and the other political segments. Republicans are not monolithically white and religious, however; half are either less religious whites or people of other racial or ethnic groups. But conservative Republicans have the highest proportion of religious whites of any of the six major partisan/ideological groups -- including almost four times as many on a proportionate basis as is the case among liberal Democrats -- which highlights the significance of religion in today's political landscape.
  2. It would appear they didn't bother to ask the same religious questions to non-whites.

    That last paragraph, "Implications", contains no implications.

    Try to imagine my overwhelming horror and utter disgust when I first read this.
  8. Pretty soon the only person that will have a voice in this country will be a one legged, mixed race lesbian who totally repsects the Islamic faith, but is a atheist herself. She votes straight democratic, but of course, claims to be independent.
    Oh, and she has a degree in Native American Folk Art, currently unemployed and looking to adopt a child from the streets of Mogadishu.

    In that vein, I think it will be the guy with the ultimate predator drone, a "Tantalus Field".
  10. THEY love the fact you (and many others) have NO IDEA who THEY are! :eek:

    Get some background on who are the handlers for those who own and run the worlds criminal syndicate central banks (controlling the worlds LIQUIDITY). Most all major governments, militaries, and significant technology corporations are infiltrated with minions/handlers.......the handlers are the "strings" from these puppets to their new MASTERS (predominantly old western european globalist wealth entities/families)!

    Here is what THEY have accelerating right before our eyes..............
