2000 and 2004 Religious Vote Study

I'd never seen the religious vote broken down this distinctly.

Of specific interest to me is how although the white "born again" protestants broke so strongly for Bush, the Black Protestant Christian community broke even more strongly for Kerry.

When we look at the "progressive christian" community, I believe one has existed for some time now, the American black Church.

Here are the numbers from the PBS.org site:

White born again Protestants:

2004 Bush 78% Kerry 22%
2000 Bush 71% Gore 29%

Black Protestants:

2004 Bush 16% Kerry 83%
2000 Bush 9% Gore 91%
