Is religion an important part of your daily life?

The Gallup Organization has a new poll out that focuses on the importance of religion to Americans.

This poll asked just one question: "Is religion an important part of your daily life?"

The most religious state seems to be Mississippi, where 85% of the respondents answered in the affirmative.

Vermont came in as the least religious at 42%. (Does that make Vermont the most secular state?)

The nationwide average was 65%.

New York just barely managed to stay out of the bottom ten, with 56% of its respondents claiming that religion was an important part of their daily lives.

Full story, with map and charts, here.
