A week before the election, John McCain is winning overwhelmingly among non-Hispanic whites who attend church weekly, while Barack Obama dominates among whites who seldom or never attend church.

Black voters overwhelmingly support Obama regardless of their relative level of religiosity. But highly religious blacks who attend church weekly (39% of non-Hispanic black voters) give Obama an 84-point margin, slightly lower than the 92- and 88-point margins for Obama among blacks who attend almost every week/monthly (33%) and those who seldom/never attend (26%), respectively.
