Low religious involvement in new poll: What does it mean?

A new Pew Research poll says Americans are less religiously involved than ever: 20 percent are not affiliated with a particular religious institution.

So...what? Any churches closing down, mosques shuttering or temples going broke? What exactly does this mean?

It might mean quite a bit, socially speaking. The Democratic Party in particular stands to gain from this long-term social shift toward the "nones," as they're identified by Pew, since many in the group are Democrats or consider themselves liberal.
