3. Candidate for this year's "You Call This NEWS?" Award

I remember reading that Obama got thirty percent of the evangelical vote in 2008.

6. 25 overall - cool interactive state map at link

While evangelicals always went Rep, the margin by which they did had staggering variation.

4. Really? I thought most of the Talabangelicals have died due to old age.

Seriously, these bastards would vote for a pro-life candidate even if they wind up with slave wages. They also get in your face about not being christian enough or that your version of christianity is not the right one.

12. They...the collective "they" as in "those people"?

That is way harsh. I know many Christians who aren't like that at all. Many Evangelicals are, but many are not. They just aren't the loud, bullying kind.

18. So they are the passive-aggressive judgmental type who think Jesus and God have them as #1 on their

 

speed dial.

Evangelicals are creeps. Christian fundamental taliban, but only their brand of fundamentalism. Ask John Scopes.

9. Any Democrat with a pulse...

would have won in 1976. The previous election cycle (1972) started with the re-election of
Nixon/Agnew, and ended with the unelected Ford/Rockefeller. Republicans were "dead meat"
in 1976 whether evangelicals "helped" or not...

11. the election of 76 was pretty close

so, if evangelicals hadn't turned out for Carter...

Carter won 297-240 in electoral votes and by 2% in the popular vote.

17. Too close to call because Carter bungled a huge advantage...

That race should have never been close. As the other poster indicated, most felt the Democrats had that election locked up when Nixon resigned...and then to have Ford pardon him...well, that should have delivered a massive electoral defeat for the Republicans. But Carter barely won and probably would have lost had Ford been given an extra week to campaign. He held a 20-point lead on Ford and it vanished within months.

He was able to hang on, of course, and the electoral college wasn't as razor thin as we saw in 2000, but it shouldn't have been that close.

8. They need to get occupied! "JC NEVER said corporations were people!"

Therefore it is the sinful word of the devil and those five evil justcies must be removed from the court!

10. I hope this means that Evangelicals are starting to realize that Obama is a good president

who deserves reelection. But if it means that they won't vote for Romney merely because he is a Mormon, then that's unfortunate. Religion has no place in elections, although of course the right wing always tries to make it so.

14. That's certainly unexpected

but, hey, we'll need all the votes we can get (without, hopefully, compromising our principles).

15. Do you really believe that?

I think they would rather vote for a Mormon (while holding their nose) than to vote for a Kenyan, Muslim, Rev Wright follower! They hate Obama much more than they hate a Republican that is a member of a cult.
