title : Religion In 2016 Presidential Super Tuesday Race Cites Opposite Logic in New Pew Poll
summary : A new, comprehensive study on religion in the presidential race was released Thursday by the Pew Research Center. Pew polling traditionally confirmed Americans prefer candidates who are people of faith; half of Americans say they would be less likely to vote for a non-believer. Only 5 percent of Republicans in the new poll said Trump was "very religious," compared to 47 percent for Ben Carson, 30 percent for Ted Cruz, and 20 percent for Marco Rubio. But while Trump is seen by Republicans as the least religious GOP candidate, he also is seen as the most likely GOP candidate to be a good or a great president.
