The trend has been lower turnout by evangelicals, frustrated by the lack of progress on abortion in the post-Bork era. Rove said lack of turnout by evangelicals almost cost Bush the election in 2000. I think the last minute DUI hit may have had some effect on that.
I think turnout will be up in 2004 because Rove and Reed have been working hard on the issue - and because people will turn out to keep a militant secularist and abortionist out of the White House. Plus a lot of evangelicals will vote to keep someone in the White House who is willing to fight the islamist terrorists, which Dean will not do.
Just my two cents - a lot can happen in the next year.

Yes a lot can happen in the next eleven months but I think you have a good assessment of the situation at this juncture...
