How many evangelical votes can McCain afford to lose?


I’ve written recently about John McCain’s outreach to evangelical Christians, that oft-mentioned Holy Grail voting bloc that propped up George Bush in 2000 and reelected him (after Iraq got ugly, no less) in 2004. (Disclaimer: I am an innocent member.) McCain hasn’t played as well, which is to be expected because it’s difficult to imagine any politician being embraced so genuinely, but he does have that anti-abortion trump card, and already is running close with Barack Obama in national polls.

Which raises an important question: What portion of the evangelical vote does McCain need to capture to move into the White House?
