A new poll by LifeWay Research shows that presidential candidates who share their faith on the campaign trail may not be helping their cause, the Christian Post reports. At least half the GOP presidential candidates have spoken about their personal religious convictions while on the campaign trail, but according to the study, only one in six Americans, or 16 percent, said they were more likely to vote for a candidate who regularly shared their religious beliefs. Even more interestingly, 30 percent indicated they would be less likely to vote for a candidate expressing religious activity, 28 percent said it would have no impact on their choice of a candidate, and 21 percent said it would depend on the candidate's religion.
