Bernie Sanders won a plurality of votes Tuesday among New Hampshire Democrats who never attend church or other religious services, while Amy Klobuchar did best among those who attend religious services regularly, according to exit polls.

Meanwhile, President Trump won 94 percent in the Republican primary among born-again/evangelical Christians, a demographic that comprised a third of New Hampshire GOP voters.

Sanders was declared the winner of the New Hampshire Democratic primary, with Pete Buttigieg finishing a close second and Klobuchar third. But the order was much different when examining Democratic voters’ religious habits.

For example, according to exit polls:

  • Sanders won 34 percent among Democrats who never attend religious services, while Buttigieg (22 percent) was second among this demographic and Klobuchar (19 percent) third.
  • Klobuchar won 28 percent among Democrats who attend religious services once a week or more, with Buttigieg (16 percent) second, Sanders (15 percent) third and Joseph Biden (14 percent) fourth.
  • Buttigieg edged Klobuchar, 26-23 percent, among Democrats who occasionally attend religious services, with Sanders (20 percent) third and Biden (13 percent) fourth.
