Dems since 2008

The headline on the latest Gallup poll says that Democrats are less white and more liberal than they were three years ago. Religiously, they have trended almost exactly as the country has: same proportion of non-Catholic Christians; fewer Catholics and other faiths; more Nones. In the country as a whole, the only religious segment of the population that’s growing is the Nones–by 25 percent (from 12 percent to 15 percent). Altogether, this would seem to bode well for the Democratic future.
