The Huffington Post, looking at the results, pointed out "the strong disbelievers being more than twice as likely as the strong believers to make $100,000 or more a year."

 

The Post put the survey in a context of the politicians debating what lessons they "should draw from religion to address issues such as the nation's deficit." For example, the Sojourners evangelical group want a shared sacrifice to help the poor. Others argue for a prosperity gospel that God will financially bless believers.
