MISSISSIPPI IS THE MOST RELIGIOUS STATE (Again)
Mississippi is ranked as the nation's most religious state in 2012, ahead of Alabama and Utah, which tied for second, according to the latest Gallup poll.
The poll found that 58 percent of Mississippi residents identified themselves as "very religious" - based on saying religion is an important part of their daily life and that they attend religious services every week or almost every week.
Alabama and Utah were at 56 percent.
Eight of the 10 most religious states were in the South, with Louisiana, Arkansas, South Carolina, Tennessee, North Carolina, Georgia and Oklahoma rounding out the top 10. The rankings were unchanged from a similar survey by Gallup in 2011.
