Based on findings in the American Religious Identification Survey (PDF):

The number of Americans who claim no religious affiliation has nearly doubled since 1990, rising from 8 to 15 percent...while the unaffiliated have historically been concentrated in the Pacific Northwest, the report said, "this pattern has now changed, and the Northeast emerged in 2008 as the new stronghold of the religiously unidentified."

From a Newsweek article titled The End of Christian America.
