How Christians and other religious groups voted in 2014 midterm elections

2014 GOP House wins

Thanks to most Christians, but no-thanks to Jews, atheists, agnostics, and other religions


Mark Silk reports for Religion News, Oct. 5, 2014, that according to exit polls on November 4, America’s various religious groups voted almost the same in the 2014 midterm elections as they did in the last midterm election in 2010, and not much different from the 2012 presidential election.

Christians

  • Protestants voted Republican 59% to 38% in 2010; 57-42 in 2012; and 60-38 in 2014.
    • White Protestants voted Republican from 69-28 in 2010 to 71-27 in 2014.
  • Catholics voted Republican 54% to 44% in 2010; voted narrowly for Democrats 50-48 in 2012; then back to favoring Republican 53-45 in 2014.
  • Regular church attenders (once a week or more) voted Republican 58-40 in 2010, 59-39 in 2012, and 58-41 in 2014.
  • Frankly, I don’t understand how any Christian can vote Democrat, given the Democratic Party is anti-God (the 2012 Democratic Party Convention 3 times rejected God from the party platform) and pro-abortion.

No Religion (atheists and agnostics)

  • Voted Democratic 68% to 30% in 2010; and 69-29 in 2014.
  • Although the No Religions are now 20% of the adult U.S. population, they accounted for only 12% of the 2014 voters.

Other Religions

The one group that appears to have shifted significantly compared to the last midterm were members of “other religions” — Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, etc.

  • More voters in 2014 were of “other religions,” increasing from 8% of all voters in 2010 to 11% in 2014.
  • 3 out of 4 “other religions” voted Democratic in 2010, decreasing somewhat to 2 out of 3 in 2014.
  • But the decrease of “other religions” who voted Democratic in 2014 came from non-Jews because —
  • The majority of American Jews remain stubbornly Democrat, despite Obama’s treatment of Israel, including a senior White House insulting Israeli prime minister by calling him a “chickenshit. Jews voted Democratic by 66% to 31% in 2010, and by 65-33 in 2014.

Given the fact that the Christian vote in 2014 was largely the same as in 2012 and 2010, that suggests that the GOP wins of both houses of Congress on November 4 are probably because of low voter turnout of the usual Democratic constituencies, specifically of Blacks and Hispanics — in spite of Democrats’ race baiting and racial scare tactics.

  1. That is very revealing.

     
  2. With noted exceptions, it seems libs/atheists/etc. love to live on the coastline, near water: east coast, west coast, Hawaii….interesting

     
  3. Dr. Eowyn –
    Great article! And, quite revealing!
    Would you, perchance have an informational link to help evidence the one Twitter claim regarding mid-term election ethnic voter stats, Moralmatters featured recently?
    2014 Election Results Sweet For GOP: More Non Whites Not Voting Democrat

  4. The stats still indicate that Catholics put Obama in. And note the wishy-washy or fluid way they vote as a bloc. The Catholic vote will shift to the Left entirely as the old generation dies off and the millenials come into their own.
    How do I know this will happen? Gresham’s Law is still at work taking the entire society (and Catholic Church in America) down. So the issue is bigger than recent elections! “You are the salt of the earth. But what if the salt loses its flavor?” That is what has been happening. The power elites who run things in this country know their marketing and public manipulation, and they will use the Protestant and other voting blocs to wedge the Catholic bloc to the Left.

     
  5. Great post! The thing that really sticks in my mind is “the mindset of Jews.” What in the world are they thinking? Obama has insulted the Jewish leaders, turned his back on them, sided with the UN, who seems to favor almost anyone over Israel. Are these people really that stupid? When the Demo’s are in favor of the death of young and old–it’s not that far a leap from favoring “culling undesirables from the herd.” What happened in the past that has them forever adhered to the Democratic party?Some of the best and brightest doctors are Jewish, so it can’t be that they are stupid. Yet, they cannot look, and therefore cannot see!

     
  6. Those voting for continuing the march to destruction should be called Lemmings for Lucifer. Print the T-shirts, manufacture the buttons!

  8. Many Jews, such as myself, are conservative and voted accordingly. American Jews aren’t any different than other American groups-some are liberal, some aren’t. Singling them out isn’t appropriate.

     
    • Leslie,
      Are you a Jew that takes umbrage whenever anyone says anything that’s remotely critical about Jews, and so effectively silence any criticism, even when the criticism is true? If any group was “singled out” in my post, it would be Christians — the only religious group that’s named in the title of this post.
      As for you being a conservative Jew, thank you. If you re-read my post, you’ll see that no where did I ever say or even imply that ALL Jews are and vote Democrat. But I am dismayed that the majority of Jews are Democrat and stubbornly remain so. Even Blacks are no longer as enchanted with Obama & Democrats: in 2008, 98% of them voted for Obama; in 2014, 90% of them voted Democrat. But the percentage of Jews who vote Democrat remains the same. Their secular ideology of liberalism trumps whatever religious convictions they may have or ethnic loyalty to Israel. Since Jews do dominate America’s intellectual class, be it the media, academia, or Hollywood, and since Jews as a group are more intelligent (with an average IQ score one standard deviation above the population mean), that also means liberal Jews do great harm with the gifts that God gave them.

       
  9. Leslie –
    I did not take offense regarding your assertion of “American Jews” being singled out. I thought that Dr. Eowyn’s short article hewed to its title. And, I thought it to be concise and on comprehensive target.

     
  10. Dr. Eowyn: If I may ask; what is the population standard median for I.Q. tests? What is 119 considered? I know there are various tests, but what is considered very high, high, average, below average, etc? Thank you for any answer you will provide. Leeann

     
    • Leeann:
      In the IQ normal distribution or bell-shaped curve, the average raw score (which is also the mean, median, and mode) is 100, and the curve can be divided into standard deviation (SD) units: +1 +2 +3 etc. above the mean; -1 -2 -3 etc. below the mean. Each SD unit is comprised of 15 IQ points. Thus, an IQ of 119 is a little more than one SD unit above the mean, which means a percentile ranking of 89.7%. Approximately 95% of the population have an IQ between 70 and 130, which is within two standard deviations ± of the mean.
