Voters who attend weekly religious services made up 11 percent of the voters surveyed, while 37 percent of voters said they ‘occasionally’ attend religious services and 51 percent said they never do.


Of the occasional servicegoers, 26 percent backed Buttigieg, with Klobuchar earning 23 percent and Sanders gaining 20 percent.

Sanders had a 12 percentage point advantage among those who never attend religious services, reaching 34 percent support. In that demographic, Buttigieg had 22 percent backing and Klobuchar had 19 percent.

Edison Media Research for the National Election Pool conducted the survey along with several media organizations, including The Washington Post. The pollsters randomly selected 2,935 voters as they exited New Hampshire polls Tuesday. The margin of error is 4 percentage points. 

Klobuchar’s lead among people who attend weekly religious services comes after the Minnesota senator argued that Democrats who oppose abortion should be welcome in the party while appearing on “The View” on Monday.

“I think we need to bring people in instead of shutting them out,” she said.
