    I thought the same thing and then looked at Wisconsin, a swing state with a hard-core protestant population. Russ seems to do fine there. His religion won't stop him, but the Democratic Party leadership might.

    •  Hard core protestant??? (none)
      Actually, though protestants are the largest group by a hair, we're the 4th or 5th most Roman Catholic state in the country.
      •  that mid-western thing... (none)
        Do you expect an ex-catholic now atheist from Michigan to count his religion by birth? Sorry if I offended.

        •  no offense at all (none)
          I just like accuracy, that's all. I think many on the coasts are extremely ill-informed about the midwest and don't realize that MI, OH, IL and to a lesser degree WI & MN are all very diverse states when it comes to religion and ethnicity. The states in the eastern half of the midwest have more in common with NY or PA than with KS or NE.
          •  your correct... (none)
            And I have lived on the west coast since 1976 and now live in Oregon, so I am a little detached from home. But I am still a Detroiter through and through.

            for us in Wisconsin, where I live in our majority-minority city  The ignorance of who and what we really are just drives me nuts on this site. . . .

      •  of more interest (none)
        is not how religion will stop Russ, but how the Democratic leadership will try.
