Did Obama win thanks to irreligious?
Posted by Staff
Although much has been reported about President Obama’s domination of the Hispanic voting bloc in his re-election, there’s another, less-hyped group who also helped him to his win: Pew Research Center calls them the “nones,” a growing number of Americans with no specific religious affiliation. Some identify as atheist or agnostic but over half consider themselves “religious” or “spiritual.”

The “nones” tend to be younger, socially liberal, Democratic and now make up nearly 20 percent of the population. Obama won over 70 percent of this vote. The “nones” were especially in crucial swing states where he was competing with Catholic and Protestant voters who tend to be Republican, like Ohio, Virginia and Florida.
