10. Historically, evangelicals were often economic left-populists

and social/religious conservatives.

The classic example was William Jennings Bryan, who was both a fighter for the working man and the Biblical literalist who fought against Clarence Darrow in the Scopes trial.

Just not the kind of guy you'd think yourself likely to find in today's America. But they do exist. I know a number of them.
