With the aid of new religiosity items on the ANES we are able to uncover considerable evidence of a “Religious Left” made up of Christians who hold a communitarian view of their faith. Going beyond the conventional “God Gap” perspective that relies on measures of individual piety, our findings demonstrate that communitarian religiosity influences partisanship, policy views, and presidential vote choice.
