Polls are either wrong or we are facing Evangelists that no longer believe in God. Unfortunately, I think it is the latter.
Another explanation, the most logical, is that the six million Evangelicals who voted for Obama look like Obama also.
From the #s I crunched, yes, more than 6 million voters -- both in THIS election -- as well as the previous one...voted for Obama.
Keep in mind this still only represents 20% of all white Evangelicals.
(I mean even 22% of gays & lesbians voted for Bush in one of the elections...2004)
So, yes, this is terrible that 6 million Evangelicals voted for Obama.
Especially when you realize that 16 million Catholics voted for Obama...and probably around 20 million non-Evangelical Protestants voted for Obama...
Satan is alive and thriving. Sad
So, that's what's wrong with the polls (SEE PEW 91%).
Now, about asking people if they are Evangelicals, you'll find that term to be quite flexible. It includes every sort of Christian BUT the Catholics, and even then I've heard an MSM news gal refer to the Pope as an extreme Evangelical.
We live and learn eh!
I carefully differentiate between regular old fashioned Protestants and Holy Rollers by referring to the Holy Rollers. The only folks I've ever heard criticize me for that were Episcopals and they are almost not Christian in any meaningful sense anymore, so who are they to complain.
What we need is some data on the Holy Rollers. They are the fastest growing Christian component and we don't know how they vote ~ but they have 2 or 3 potential Presidential candidates already lined up and ready to go in the future.
Let's get the regular pollsters out there interrogating some of those self-described "Evangelicals" to tell us if they're really Holy Rollers or something else ~ denomination names might well be in order for this.
Then the Episcopals can scream and shout over that. Should be a regular circus.
“Polls are either wrong or we are facing Evangelists that no longer believe in God. Unfortunately, I think it is the latter.”
They don’t believe in God but they consider themselves “spiritual,” dontcha know...
