PEW Says Christians ‘Overrepresented’ In Congress

The Daily Caller - 01-04


Christians are “overrepresented” in Congress compared to their representation in U.S. society, a new PEW report found. The research group’s analysis of incoming Senate and House members shows Protestant Christians comprising 54.9 percent, compared to 48 percent of the U.S. adult population. Further, Catholics (30.5 percent to 21 percent) and Jews (6.4 percent to 2 percent) were both significantly overrepresented.
