A new poll released on Monday from Public Religion Research Institute finds that Americans who are unaffiliated in their religious views or who are less religious are less likely to head to the polls this election season.

After the GOP and Democratic conventions had adjourned by early September, the Romney campaign was growing increasingly concerned about the polling differences that separated them and President Obama.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Monday that she, not President Obama, is responsible for the Sept. 11 attacks in Benghazi that killed a U.S. diplomat and three other Americans.
