Many Americans don’t view top Democratic candidates as very religious, new survey claims

1 min read

Religion is a topic of persistent discussion during this election cycle. Despite religiosity regarded as a strong factor shaping the political views of top Democratic candidates, many Americans don’t perceive those candidates as very religious, a new survey proclaims.

As published by Pew Research Center, top contenders who participated in the Democratic presidential primary in 2020 were the subject of a survey initiated between February 4th through the 15th.

In the survey, the top contender at the time was described by participants as “not too” or “not at all” religious, based on responses from most, or six-in-ten Americans, who participated in the study.

Moreover, also in the findings, the survey determined that Republicans were less likely to view the Democratic candidates as religious among the adult participants.

Sanders isn't particularly religious, according to most Americans
