New data finds that more Americans are religious moderates than anything else. The Public Religion Research Institute says almost four-in-ten Americans hold moderate religious views, compared to about 30 percent who are religious conservatives and about 20 percent religious progressives. 15 percent are not religious. The largest single group among progressives are Catholics, and among conservatives, white evangelical Protestants.
