MSNBC finds that Oregon Democratic Primary voters are not very Christian. 11 % are something else (of which only 1% Jewish9 28% have no religion. I was interested that 15% know they are Christian but don't identify as either Catholic or Protestant. It is also striking that Clinton almost exactly tied among Catholics and Protestants but lost "other Christian"

Religion
Category % Total Clinton Obama
Protestant 28 49 49
Catholic 16 48 49
Mormon / LDS 2 - -
Other Christian 15 36 61
Jewish 1 - -
Muslim 0 - -
Something else 10 28 70
None 28 39 60

Odd. Even odder is the fact that this pattern does not show up with church attendence (lots of the "other Christians" and maybe some "something elsers" seem to attend whatever church they attend pretty often).

How often do you attend religious services?
Category % Total Clinton Obama
Weekly 22 42 55
Occasionally 41 41 56
Never 33 42 57

Now let's see what horrors blogger creates with the tables.
