Study found that the “partisan ‘God Gap’ has closed” and aimed to refute claims about “values voters” by showing that a majority of Americans are concerned with issues beyond abortion and gay marriage. The poll found that even among evangelical Christians, only 10 percent say abortion and gay marriage will be the most important factor in determining their vote.

This is also the most in-depth survey on religion, values, and politics in two years, including a large enough number of responses (2,502 plus additional over- sampling of African Americans and Hispanics).
