According to a new Gallup Poll, Mississippi remains as the state with the most religious people in the country. In a national poll, 58% of the state’s population claimed to be very religious while Vermont was on the low end of the spectrum with only 19%.  The entire southern belt of the U.S. had 8 of the 10 most religious states in the country.  Alabama was 3rd, Louisiana 4th, Arkansas 5th, followed by South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina and Georgia. The only two most religious states not in the south are Utah at #2 and Oklahoma at #10.

By contrast, the least religious states were found in the Northeast with Vermont at the bottom followed by New Hampshire at 23%, Maine at 24%, Massachusetts at 27%, with Rhode Island and Connecticut in the bottom 10. Other states in the bottom 10 include District of Columbia, Nevada, Hawaii and Alaska. Overall 40% of Americans consider themselves very religious, while 7 in 10 say they are moderately religious.
