The results of a new poll came out, showing how likely Americans are to vote for presidential candidates based on their religion.
While talking through the findings on radio Tuesday, Glenn couldn't help but notice the earmarks of a phase in American history we're entering into, unlike any other - except maybe a few instances, including after 9/11, during the Civil War and the American Revolution.
GLENN: So a new poll out. Who would you vote for president by religion? Stu.
STU: Okay. Catholic. Would you vote for a Catholic as president? 93 percent say yes.
GLENN: Wait a minute. Hang on just a second. This is not who you would vote for. What religion --
STU: Would you vote for an announced out Catholic?
GLENN: An outed Catholic -- I'm outed as a Catholic.
PAT: Well, we already have. That was a long time ago.
GLENN: That was a very big deal. Kennedy.
STU: But the one that has been talked about recently of course with Ben Carson, Donald Trump. Muslim. Would you vote for a Muslim for president? 60 percent say, yes, they would vote for a Muslim for president. Would you vote for an evangelical Christian for president? What would you think that number would be, given those two other numbers. 60 percent for Muslim. Ninety-three for Catholic. What would you say evangelical would be?
GLENN: Yeah, no, I'm going to say it's 50.
JEFFY: It's a lot less though.
STU: 73 percent.
JEFFY: Oh, okay.
STU: Mormon. I don't know if it's because Mitt Romney just ran, but 81 percent say Mormon.
STU: So more people would vote for a Mormon for president than an evangelical Christian.
PAT: That's really surprising.
STU: I feel like that's not the way the media would present that story, but that is the latest poll --
GLENN: I will tell you, in dealing with Facebook and dealing with preachers and everything else, I think there's a huge change in all religions. I think people are saying two things that are unique and good. My particular faith, whatever it is, is important. And my particular doctrine is important to me. But I'm no longer going to condemn you because you don't choose my faith. I think that's extraordinarily healthy.
JEFFY: That's the way it's supposed to be.
GLENN: It is the way it's supposed to be, but let's be honest with each other. It's never been that way. During the American Revolution, it was that way for a limited period of time. During the Civil War, it was that way for a limited period of time.
STU: On 9/12, it was that way for a limited period of time.
GLENN: Limited period of time. And I think it's coming back.

Just in time for the arrival of Pope Francis later this month to hold mass at the church, a three-year restoration project at St. Patrick's is largely completed. The project at one of America's most popular churches cleaned the exterior of the church, repaired panels and stained glass windows and restored the large bronze doors at the Fifth Avenue entrance. St. Patrick's held its first Mass in 1879. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
