    Pennsylvania Church-Goers Turn Their Backs on Obama

    (CNSNews.com) - Sen. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) soundly defeated Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) among church-going voters in Tuesday's Pennsylvania presidential primary, exposing a potential weakness in the Democratic frontrunner among northern church-going voters, particularly Catholics, who have been a key swing vote in recent presidential elections.

    Clinton beat Obama in Pennsylvania among all voters who said they attend church, even if they do so only a few times a year, according to the exit poll conducted for the major television networks. Obama, by contrast, beat Clinton among voters who said they never go to church. (See Pennsylvania exit poll)

    This represents a complete reversal of the northern church-going vote since the February 19 Democratic primary in Wisconsin, where Obama overwhelmed Clinton, 58% to 41%.

    And so they should considering that he seems to think that people only go to church because they are "bitter". I guess nobody can accuse him of being "bitter" since he did not attend church enough to know that his pastor was anti-American.

    So you're saying that church goers support Hillary. Interesting.
