PRINCETON, N.J., Oct. 27 (UPI) -- White weekly churchgoers say they support Republican presidential nominee John McCain over Democrat Barack Obama by a 37-point margin, a poll indicates.
Among those who go to religious services nearly every week or monthly, McCain has a 12-point advantage.
Meanwhile, Obama has a 19-point advantage over McCain among those who seldom or never attend worship services, the Gallup poll indicates.
Gallup also found that black voters overwhelmingly support Obama regardless of their church attendance. The poll indicates that blacks who attend church weekly give Obama an 84-point margin, only slightly lower than the 92- and 88-point margins among blacks who attend almost every week or monthly and those who seldom or never attend religious services.
"A positive correlation between religious intensity and voting for the Republican candidate for president has been a part of the American political landscape for a number of years," Gallup said in its analysis.
The poll is based on telephone interviews with 23,111 registered voters, aged 18 and older, conducted Oct. 1 to Oct. 26. The maximum margin of sampling error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.

I go to church every week ... and I don't support McCain ...
Yeah, I know, I'm a bone-headed liberal.
I'm 64 and counting ... wouldn't have it any other way.
I've waited along time to see a change in our nation's direction.
I love America, but I've despised the right-wing idiocy under which we've lived for too long.
Reagan the Great Liar.
George H - a decent man, but did nothing to change the character of our drift toward facism.
Clinton - a great president, but trapped in the Gingrich swamp.
George W - a total idiot manipulated by fascists.
Can we break with all of this garbage?
I hope so.
