American Mormons for war in Iraq, and American Jews against it.

Gallup polled on attitudes on whether sending troops to Iraw was or was not a mistake (a rather loaded question), and in a change from breaking down the results in the usual fashion, instead did it by religious affiliation.

The most anti were Black Protestants (78%), Jews (77%), and the non-religious (66%), with Mormons by far the most gung ho at 72% pro, followed by non-Black Protestants at 55%. Catholics split fairly evenly at 53% anti and 46% pro, in line with the national 52 anti /46 pro split.

Gallup does not publish a full breakdown of believers by political position, but notes that Democrat and non-Democrat Jews were both strongly anti at 89% and 65%, far starker figures than for gentiles. More here.
