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...
Sorry, you can NOT be an Evangelical and vote for Obama! That means that either our definition of Evangelical is wrong or we have loosen the idea so that anyone can define themselves as an Evangelical with no idea what that actually means!
The short version is that we do not have Evangelicals that would vote for Obama - otherwise, they could NOT be Evangelicals - a major contraindication here for me!
In reality NO REAL EVANGELICALS would ever vote for Obama!
>even 22% of gays & lesbians voted for Bush in one of the elections...2004<
And Pew states that “Romney received as much support from evangelical voters as George W. Bush did in 2004. (79%) and more support from evangelicals than McCain did in 2008 (73%). Mormon voters were also firmly in Romneys corner; nearly eight-in-ten Mormons (78%) voted for Romney, while 21% voted for Obama. Romney received about the same amount of support from Mormons that Bush received in 2004.
57% of Protestants overall voted for Romney, while 42% supported Obama. Catholics as a whole were evenly divided in 2012 (50% voted for Obama, while 48% backed Romney) - http://www.pewforum.org/Politics-and-Elections/How-the-Faithful-Voted-2012-Preliminary-Exit-Poll-Analysis.aspx
By attacking evangelicals it seems almost like someone is attempting damage control for another religious group.
