Who Did Evangelicals Vote for in the Florida GOP Primary?

The Pew Research Center reports on yesterday’s GOP primary in Florida:

“New analysis of the Florida primary by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life based on results from the National Election Pool (NEP) shows that Mitt Romney received strong support from Catholics and from voters who do not describe themselves as white born-again/evangelical Christians. Among the four-in-ten Florida primary voters who described themselves as white evangelical Christians, 38% voted for Gingrich (who is Catholic), while 36% supported Romney (who is Mormon). About one-in-five Florida evangelicals (19%) supported Santorum (a Catholic), while 5% voted for Ron Paul (who is Baptist). Romney was the clear favorite of non-evangelicals, receiving 54% of their support.”
