In addition to the good news below (American voters are more interested this year than they have been for more than a decade), a Gallup poll that came out today indicates that religious whites are abandoning the GOP.

But the Democratic gain (or Republican loss depending on how one looks at it) is more significant among religious whites than among the other two groups. Religious whites went from an average Democratic disadvantage of 23 points across the June through September months, to dead even in October. ...

According to this poll, religious whites are just as likely to vote Democratic as Republican.
