While discussing Democratic politicians' efforts to reach out to religious voters, CNN senior national correspondent John Roberts asserted that "[f]or years, Democrats, unlike Republicans, have been afraid to wear religion on their sleeve." Roberts then added that it is, now, "to the point" that Democrats are "perceived as a party of secular snobs," which has "turned off a large slice of America." Roberts made his comments during the June 28 edition of CNN's The Situation Room.

From the June 28 edition of CNN's The Situation Room:

ROBERTS: For years, Democrats, unlike Republicans, have been afraid to wear religion on their sleeve. It's to the point that they're perceived as a party of secular snobs, and it turned off a large slice of America. But now, they want to try to win that slice back.
