'Religiously-unaffiliated' now largest group among Dems

The largest single religious group among Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters is now the "religiously-unaffiliated," according to Pew's Religious Landscape Study.

More than one in four Democrats and Democratic leaners are unaffiliated religiously. Eight percent of Democrats identified as part of a non-Christian faith, compared to 3 percent of Republicans.

As a whole, the U.S. public is becoming less religious than in previous years. Seventy-seven percent of American adults are religiously affiliated, down from 83 percent in 2007. Eleven percent of the American public does not believe in God. Fifty-five percent of Americans pray daily, and only 50 percent of Americans now attend services at least monthly.
