Mark Silk, at Religion News Service, looks at the religious numbers of yesterday’s electorate. Most numbers were similar to recent elections past, with one exception:
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. In 2010, three out of four voted Democratic, while this time around it was two out of three. And given that their proportion of the vote increased from 8 percent to 11 percent, that was not a trivial number of votes.
