This Map Shows The Dominant Religious Group In Every US County | Business Insider 
A few observations from the perspective of 2013: 
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, aka the Mormon Church, seems to have heeded Mark Twain’s advice: ”Buy land, they’re not making it anymore.” In November the Mormon Church bought 2% of Florida.
The Bible Belt, comprised mostly of Southern Baptists, is on full display and informs the strong social conservative strain that runs through American politics.
Catholics barely beat out the Southern Baptists for the highest number of counties with the most adherents. 
Kansas, Illinois, Indiana, and West Virgina appear to have the most diversity when it comes to dominant religious groups. On the other side is Vermont and New Hampshire, which are considered the Godless states.

We don’t call it the Deep South for nothing. Notice how there are no non-Christian faiths even approaching dominance anywhere in the US. What does that say, do you think?
