Will Religion Affect Your Vote in 2008?

Over the last week, talk of religion is everywhere on the campaign trail.

In Tuesday night's Republican debate, Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, and Rudy Giuliani all fielded questions about their religious beliefs.

On Monday night, the Big 3 Democratic presidential candidates -- Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton, and John Edwards -- participated in a forum on faith sponsored by Sojourners -- a progressive Christian magazine.

Over at Voting Blocs, we've started a discussion about the role candidates' and voters' religion will play in the 2008 election.

We've turned off the comments on this post -- just this once -- to encourage readers to participate our new discussion group (linked below). Consider the following questions before sounding off:

How much will religion matter in 2008? Will religion, yours or a candidate's, be a primary factor in determining how you vote? Do you find the religious rhetoric of candidates to be sincere? Are religious voters now a bloc to be reckoned with on BOTH the left and the right? Let us know what you think.
