According to the Gallup tracking poll of the presidential race, President Barack Obama enjoys a massive lead over Mitt Romney among registered voters who say they have no religion, CNSNews.com reports. In the three-week period ending Sept. 3, Obama led Romney 69 percent to 23 percent among those who had no religion, the exact same result Gallup got in the previous three-week period ending August 26. Since Gallup began publishing demographic breakouts of its tracking poll on May 6, Obama has held a large lead among voters who say they have no religion -- and he has even managed to grow that lead. In other religious categories that Gallup tracks, however, Romney leads Obama: 54 percent to 39 percent among Protestants and Christians, 47 percent to 45 percent among Catholics, 58 percent to 35 percent among those who say they are "highly religious," and 47 percent to 45 percent among those who say they are "moderately religious."
