It'd be interesting to see some stats on this but off by hand, I think that Pentecostals are hardly overwhelmingly republican. The Pentecostal churches in my city tend to be in poorer, urban areas. The Pentecostal movement seems to have a noteworthy presence in the Latino community, too:http://www.nhclc.org/news/latino-rel...ifts-and-trend
