Another analysis on proposition 8

Gay Religion reports that Catholics and Mormons together won the Proposition 8 campaign.

Exit polls show that religious views had a profound effect on the result, spanning racial lines:
-- 84 percent of those who attend church weekly voted yes.
-- 81 percent of white evangelicals voted yes.
-- 65 percent of white Protestants voted yes.
-- 64 percent of Catholics voted yes. Catholics accounted for 30 percent of all voters.
A late push by many churches to win over their congregations played a decisive role in increasing turnout and swaying opinion, said Mark DiCamillo, director of the Field Poll, who analyzed the figures.
