Anglicans almost twice as likely to vote Conservative

From The Telegraph-

The traditional image of the Church of England as the “Tory party at prayer” still holds true despite a series of high profile rows between bishops and Conservative politicians over issues such as poverty, polling shows.

Analysis by YouGov for the Church Times found that people who identify themselves as Anglicans are almost twice as likely to vote Conservative as Labour.

It suggest a major divide between the leadership of the church, which has been perceived as leaning to the left on issues such as welfare, and those in the pews.

In marked contrast, Roman Catholics in mainland Britain emerge as more than a third more likely to vote Labour.
