Keep sweating those evangelical votes, Obama



Evangelical voice James Dobson

It appears ChristianityToday.com’s survey of evangelicals voters, which showed Barack Obama edging John McCain, was as inaccurate as it was unscientific, at least for Colorado, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The latest results from the Quinnipiac Poll found McCain the evangelical favorite by 62 points—78 percent to 16 percent—in Colorado; that’s James Dobson country.

But the poll also showed, as Spiritual Politics notes, that evangelical support for McCain, though still the favorite, was not as overwhelming in the upper Midwest: 60 percent to 27 percent in Michigan, 62 to 30 in Minnesota and 54 to 34 in Wisconsin. Those numbers, though still losers, could set off that “political earthquake” John Green at Pew warned us about.
