    Title: CHURCHGOING CLOSELY TIED TO VOTING PATTERNS

    Where will you spend Sunday morning? Will you go to church or Home Depot? Sing in the choir or play golf? Answer that question and you've given the most reliable demographic clue about your vote on Election Day.

    Voters who say they go to church every week usually vote for Republicans. Those who go to church less often or not at all tend to vote Democratic.

    Forget the gender gap. The "religion gap" is bigger, more powerful and growing. The divide isn't between Catholics and Protestants, Jews and Gentiles. Instead, on one side are those of many faiths who go to services, well, religiously: Catholics who attend Mass without fail, evangelical Christians and mainline Protestants who show up for church rain or shine, some Orthodox Jews. On the other side are those who attend religious services only occasionally or never.

    so there may be a link in the way some people just blindly follow, whether it be religion or political party -- not ALL, just some

    hey, that makes a lot of sense, actually.

    for instance, i sleep through about half of my sundays,
    and i am equally apathetic and uninvolved when it comes to politics :p
