Why Carter Won?

I found this map at Caveat Bettor to be fascinating.

Basically, it looks at each county in the United States, determines what the largest religious group is in said county, and maps it by color.

As expected, since the Roman Catholic Church is the largest church in the United States, most of the counties are blue (for Catholic, not for Democratic). However, you can see a huge Baptist bloc, and clearly identifiable Mormon and Lutheran blocs, with a scattering of Methodists and others.

What the map doesn't show is the relative population per county. However, it can indicate possible regional trends.
