More people of faith are likely to vote Republican this year than they were in 2008, according to a new poll by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.
The survey found that there was a 13 percent increase of Jews leaning toward the GOP. In addition, there was a 9 percent increase in Republican-leaning white Catholics.
According to the poll, nearly two-thirds of Americans surveyed said they believe religion is losing its influence on politicians.
The Pew survey was conducted July 21 - Aug. 21 and polled 3,003 adults, including 2,431 registered voters.
