Ron Faucheux, President of Clarus Research Group, on Statistical Analysis of Born-Again Christians in the 2012 Presidential Election
November 13, 2012
In this election, as was the case four years ago, 26 percent of the electorate called themselves born-again Christians. Four years ago, John McCain thumped Barack Obama by a 50-point margin among this constituency. This year, Mormon Mitt Romney beat Obama by an even wider 57 points. So, yes, born-again Christians will vote for a Mormon, and they will do so in heavy numbers in the right situation.
