GALLUP: 22-point gain for the Democrats among white frequent churchgoers
Gallup has released its own analysis today of its Oct 6-8 poll:

For the purpose of political analysis this year, Gallup has divided the American population into three groups based on race and church attendance: Religious whites (defined as whites who self-report attending church weekly or almost every week), less religious whites (defined as whites who self-report attending church monthly or less often), and all others.

The Democrats made gains across all groups in the October poll compared to the averages in previous months. But the Democratic gain (or Republican loss depending on how one looks at it) is more significant among religious whites than among the other two groups. Religious whites went from an average Democratic disadvantage of 23 points across the June through September months, to dead even in October. Less religious whites shifted only seven points across these two time periods, while the group of "all others" shifted 9 points.

A comparison of the September average to October shows a 22-point gain for the Democrats among white frequent churchgoers, a six-point gain among white less frequent churchgoers, and a 14-point gain among all others.

4. You can only scare people for a set time frame
Edited on Thu Oct-12-06 09:33 AM by mtnester
before they figure out you were full of shit.

WAIT until Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction by David Kuo hits full blown Monday. The blurbs that KO is doing nightly are DAMNING for the Repubs, and once the entire book reaches the bookstores, people of the Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwel ilk will be PUBLICLY humiliated.

Let's see how THAT goes over. Between Foleygate and this book, I do not think there IS enough damage control in the universe to fix this.

8. Anyone watch "Is God Green?" last night with Bill Moyers?
Featured "evangelical" christians from Idaho to West Virginia who have had a "coming to Jesus" on the environment. Many are changing their viewpoints on issues like global warming and resource extraction, and more than a few are changing their votes as well.

Of course, there was the inevitable flat-earther who claimed that global warming, hurricanes, and other environmental issues are merely "God's Will"....
