job approval rating of any major religious group in the U.S., while
Mormons give the president the lowest ratings." Here is Gallup's chart:

Tracking the relative support of the president in the month of September, Gallup reports that 64% of U.S. Jews
approve of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, significantly
higher than the 52% average among national adults in September, and
also higher than was seen among Catholics, Protestants, and Mormons.
Only nonreligious Americans equal Jews in their support for the
president. Here is Gallup's chart:

By a sunstantial margin, American Jews--far more than either Catholics or Protestants--are President Obama's biggest supporters. According to a new Quinnipiac poll, there is a big religious split as white Catholics approve of the
President 57% to 33% while white Protestants split 44% to 42%. Jewish
voters back Obama 76% to 12%. The numbers among Jewish voters closely match their sopport of the Democrat last November which hovered around 80% (78%, to be exact).

A Gallup survey released on Tuesday reports that while Hispanic voters support Barack Obama by a wide margin over John McCain, there is a significant difference in the Hispanic vote by
religion: "Catholic Hispanics support Obama by a 39-point margin, while Hispanics
who are Protestant or who identify with some other non-Catholic Christian faith
support Obama by a much smaller 10-point margin." Obama's leads overall among all Hispanic registered voters by 62% to 30%. It is doubtful that this disparity will impact on the outcome of the election, unless, of course, it is very close.
