Gallup polls show Vermont is least religious state

Posted: Updated:

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Gallup says that Vermont is the least religious state in the nation.

Poll results show that 22 percent of Vermonters identify as "very religious" and 56 percent of Vermonters identify as "non-religious."

New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts and Oregon join Vermont to make up the top five least religious states in the country.

The poll average shows that by comparison about 41 percent of Americans identify as very religious, slightly higher than in 2012, 2011 and 2008.

Gallup bases the results on more than 174,000 interviews done during Gallup Daily tracking in 2013.
