Election 2015

Does religion and religiosity make a difference in how Britons vote?

During the 2015 General Election campaign, we released a series of blogs which analyzed the connections between voting habits and religious beliefs and practices.

Where do different religious and non-religious groups sit on the left-right political scale? Which groups favour a more ‘welfarist’ approach to politics, and which a more individualist? Are Anglicans really the Tory party at prayer, and do people of minority faiths always favour Labour?

To answer thes questions we draw on data taken from our report Voting and Values: Does religion count?
