And compared to past campaign seasons, religion is taking a backseat in this year’s . presidential election. Donald Trump is not outwardly religious ( and his attraction of evangelical voters has raised questions about the longevity and the motives of the religious right ). Hillary Clinton has said “ advertising about faith doesn’t come naturally to me .” And Bernie Sanders is “not actively involved” in a religion. Their reticence about religion reflects the second largest religious group in the country they hope to run. Aside from Ted Cruz, the leading candidates just aren’t up for talking about religion. The number of Americans who seek divine intervention in the voting booth seems to be shrinking.
