Exit polls: Religious voters show up in large numbers

(CNN) - Religious voters were the subject of much speculation before the Pennsylvania primary. Early exit polling shows 39 percent of today's voters attend church weekly. Fifty-nine percent of them voted for Hillary Clinton while 41 percent voted for Barack Obama. Forty-three percent of today's voters say they attend church occasionally. Of this group, 51 percent went for Clinton and 49 percent went for Obama.

Thirty-six percent of today's Democratic primary voters were Catholic. Twenty-seven percent of today's voters were Protestant. Thirteen percent descibed themselves as "other Christian." Ten percent say they have no religion and 7 percent of today's voters were Jewish.

    I am a Catholic voter in PA, who is NOT HYPOCRITICAL, CLOSE-MINDED, OR SHELTERED, thank you very much. I voted for HIllary because she is the only one out of the two who says HOW things will get done. And by knowing HOW things will get done...only then will you see "change."
