131M voted in 2008. As of now, 124M votes have been counted. Evangelicals were 26% of the vote both in 2008 and 2012. They went 78% for Romney vs 74% for McCain.

There are at least a couple of million votes yet to be counted, so Romney will almost certainly exceed surpass McCain in both % support and in absolute numbers among evangelicals.

Thanks for that info. Here is some data for Alabama FWIW

Alabama went for Santorum in the primaries.

Republican Democrat
2012 1,253,790 (61%) 793,966 (38%)
Gary Johnson siphoned off 12,292

2008 1,264,879 (60%) 811,764 (39%)
Ralph Nader siphoned off 6,616

less turn out in 2012 vs 2008 for both dems and republicans but we are talking fairly small numbers here. even more of a lower turnout for dems in 2012. certainly had little effect on the percentage voting Republican in this state.

Of course this is Alabama. What makes more of a difference is turnout history in the swing states and exit poll data & internals etc

So more evangelicals voted for Romney than McCain, that is good news. The other problem is that the American people believe tha the have to experience rligious experience over objective truths. Spo part of the problem is that across the entireity of American Christianity the emphasis is on the subjective comes before the objective.

Christianity is to be based on the objectivity of the Cross and through the objective understanding that Christ died for the sins of mankind, that are sins are forgiven. The Christian experience comes from a knowledge of a relationship with God, an attitude of putting God first and foremost and the willingness to serve ones fellow man without having to announce to the world Christian Charity and Christian love.

King Solomon wrote in 2 Chronicles 7:14 - If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and prayer and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

remember Solomon was a wise king, but Solomon had a problem he allowed through multiple marriages to adopt many of the religious views that brought about the idolatry of the nation of Israel, his offspring did not utilize wise judgement, the nation of Israel split up into two nations, Israel and Judah. Today the nation of Israel is actual the land of the nation of Judah. the nation of Israel is rooted in its land.

many of the forefathers and other founders of this country founded this nation as a beacon on a hill, a nation called into existence by God.

America has turned its back on God. So Solomon in writing in regards to hearing from God if his leadership would turn its eyes on God the nation of Israel would survive.

America’s leadership is in the toilet. the American people have become disheartened by the false leadership. The current leadership of the USA is not of God and was achieved by falsehoods, dishonesty and cheating. God will take care of Obama.

The solution is that the American people must turn their hearts and minds to God. The American people must take a leadership role at the local level to get the local governments in line with Godly principals and values that the nation was founded. The only way to change the leadership in Washington DC is to work at the home (municipal) level and strive to change the state level and than the federal level. For example look at Wisconsin - the state level maintained many republican leaderships in spite of the losses that occurred at the federal level. fraud and deceit caused for the losses for the federal levels Baldwin/Thompson and Obama/romney - look at Racine, Kenosha, Dane (Madison) and Milwaukee areas - Chicago unions were brought into to vote fraudulently.

In Michigan where I live at the local level Benishek defeated a career democrat McDowell for the federal race. benishek being local for the UP of Michigan. in other local races - the democrats that ran against republicans and or independents were defeated. the oddity is the democrats that ran unopposed did win. An independent defeated a long term democrat for County Commissioner at majority level.

maybe the 2012 race was not perfect in the resuls what many wanted. But God may be utilizing the concept of a 2X4 to smack someone Americans to get their attention - you allow for a godless leadership there are consequences to your religious freedom

Wake up America it is now the time to fight for your freedom. The freedoms that you have can be stolen from you because you have forgotten to focus on the objecive truth of God is in control and he sometimes has to hmble people to wake them up from the stupor that they have been drawn into by a false teacher.

Someone can claim they are a christian. But christians will see the fruit they bear. Lying by a president of the USA is only the tip of his true character. Under the charismatic leadership their is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

( Sorry to be preachy)
