Second Most Common Religious Following By State and County

This is an interesting infographic, via the Washington Post, on the second most popular religious following by state.  While Christianity is first across the country, there is some definite patterns to which religion is second around the nation. The WP also  published an even more detailed breakdown by county.

Christianity is the largest religion in the US, by a wide margin: more than three-quarters of Americans identify as Christians. Buddhism is second. The data comes from a 2010 census sponsored by the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies.
