The poll shows that 40 percent of Republicans say they attend church weekly. While 21 percent say they attend nearly weekly or monthly, and 38 percent say they rarely go to church.
Meanwhile of their political counterparts polled, only 27 percent of Democrats who say they go to church every week, 20 percent say they go monthly and 52 percent of Democrats say they seldom or never go to church.

Just for good measure, because all of the lefties will cite their “enlightenment” as reason for not believing in God, here’s what a couple of nobody’s said about society and religion:
“Every human society that tears out religion, removes its foundation.” - Plato, 10th Book of the Law
“The most Pious cities and nations have ever been the wisest and most lasting.” - Xenophon, 4th cen. B.C. historian and philosopher
“It’s easier to build a city in the air than to constitute a society without belief in the gods.” - Plutarch, 1st cen. A.D. historian and philosopher
1) Left-wingers are more enlightened than right-wingers.
2) None of your quotes bolster the case that a magical deity exists, nor that a belief in such a deity is either necessary or beneficial to human societies.
3) You said you were citing a “couple of nobody’s” but you cited three people (not two) and misspelled “nobodies.”
4) “Religious bondage shackles and debilitates the mind and unfits it for every noble enterprise.” That’s from a “nobody” named James Madison. Here’s another quote, this one from Edward Gibbon, the historian who wrote The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire: “Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.” — Ryking
