African American churchgoers are more likely to politically identify as Democrat than the overall African American population, according to a report by the Barna Group.

In the report released Thursday, Barna found that while around two-thirds of all black adults considered themselves Democrat, a little over three-quarters of churchgoing blacks said the same.

Sixty-seven percent of all African American adults said they were Democrat, while 19% said independent, 8% said they had no affiliation, and 6% said Republican.

By contrast, 76% of African American churchgoers said they were Democrat, while 14% said they were independent, 5% said they were Republican and 5% said they had no affiliation.
