Commentary

Democrat
On the attendance scale, Obama prevailed among the most and least frequent, Clinton among those in the middle. The two split the Protestant vote with 36 percent eachóif the Other Christians arenít counted. The latter, constituting only 8 percent of vote, went strongly for Clinton, 52 percent to 31 percent. This was where Clintonís strength among Catholics first became evident: She carried them over Obama by 4 percent to 27 percent. Edwards was right behind, with 24 percent of the Catholic vote. The non-Judeo-Christians (seven percent) also went for Clinton over Obama, by a modest margin of 41 percent to 27 percent. The only grouping carried by Obama were the Nones, whom he dominated with 45 percent, compared to Clintonís 29 percent.

Republican
Huckabee received a plurality of the more-than-weekly attendees (nine percent of the total), with 34 percent, five points more than Romney and 10 points more than McCain (who won all the other attendance categories). The evangelicals split three ways, with Huckabee and McCain at 28 percent and Romney at 27 percent. New Hampshirites, like most New Englanders, donít go in heavily for sectarian voting. That can be seen among Catholics and Protestants, who pretty much divided their vote evenly between McCain and Romney, though Huckabee picked up more than his fair share of the latter. Huckabee did beat out Romney (though he came in behind McCain) among the Other Christiansómostly evangelicals, by our reckoning.
