Obama NOT gaining evangelical voters
I know that headline runs contrary to what I’ve written before—in July an informal Christianity Today poll found that about 51 percent of respondents supported Barack Obama, compared to 41 percent for John McCain. But another
more-scientific survey, this one from Crosswalk.com, a site popular with evangelical Christians, discovered Obama’s evangelical outreach is in the depths of despair.
The poll, via the Bible Belt Blogger, found that only 5 percent—close to zero when considering the margin of error for a scientific survey—plan to vote for Obama. McCain stands to receive 81 percent of these 777 voters.
And with such a perfect number of participants, how could this poll be wrong?
