Gallup: Only Two Percent of Conservatives Don’t Believe in a Higher Power

HotAir reports on a Gallup poll regarding belief in God in America.

Among the breakdowns in the poll are belief in God by region:

Not surprisingly (at least to me), the South and Midwest have a higher percentage of folks who believe in God.

The poll is also broken down by belief in God by political ideology:

Again not surprisingly, conservatives are more likely to believe in God than non-conservatives. But then, that sorta goes along with the definition of being, you know, "conservative". (See, e.g., Russell Kirk's tenets of conservatism, which include the belief in a transcendant order or natural law.)
