According to one exit poll released through CNN, 42 per cent of Protestant Christians voted for Barack Obama and 57 per cent for Romney. Among the nation’s Catholics, half voted for Obama and 48 per cent for Romney.

Among those who identified themselves as Protestant or Catholic but said they “never” attended religious services, 62 per cent voted for Obama and 34 per cent for Romney.
