The Protestant-Catholic split.

Clinton's campaign is calling her Massachusetts win "one of the biggest surprises of the night." It is that, especially since she lost the endorsement of the state's most famous political family. The Kennedys are probably the state's most famous Catholic family, too, and she handily won Roman Catholic voters in that state, while Obama took the Protestant and "no religion" vote.

Jewish (6%)

Something else (7%)

None (19%)

I'm a little surprised that the "no religion" vote (19%) among Massachusetts Democrats is bigger than the Protestant vote (15%).
