A well-connected authority in the evangelical world said in an interview this week that Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama could get up to 40 percent of the evangelical vote.

He’s an expert what? Guesser? He should join a carnival and get some real practice.
At the right time.
Are these one of those “evangelicals” that support abortion? Hogwash, Obama has the black vote and the brainwashed liberals. That gets him about 35-40%. Perhaps he can win with enough recounts and hanging chads.
But he’s for “change” and “hope” and “hope for change” and all that, and he’s Messianic and vibrant and good looking and....
The Sheeple of the United States...
I predict the sheeple will riot when their Messiah fails.
I’m beginning to get very nervous about that.
For that matter, I suspect they might riot if he wins.

sigh...Where is Wisdom?
There’s a whole lot of people claiming to be “evangelicals,” if they support the pro-death position of the Obama campaign.
I’ve seen a bunch of posts today “predicting” that Obama will get the Evangelical vote, the conservative Catholic vote, etc. I suspect the article writers have been sent propaganda by Obama publicists which they are dutifully rewriting and publishing in an attempt to give the impression that it’s a done deal and that everybody who’s anybody supports their Messiah.
I think we’re going to see a lot of this in the future.
I expect the ghetto gang grubs will riot along with Michelle. She’ll probably be leading the pack.
I predict that Angelina Jolie and Catherine Zeta Jones are on their way to my house with some baby oil and a six pack of Michelob.
I won’t be part of the 40%, thank you.
That does seem to be missing from his mantra, doesn’t it? From his LIFE, for that matter.
Do we have a definition of *evangelical*, as used in the article? I have been told by non-Christians/secular progressives that churches I consider liberal like United Methodist and the more liberal Lutheran congregations are considered *evangelical*.
Obama will get the votes of the liberal Christian churches.
I wonder if one of their examples is a gay Bishop in the Episcopal Church.
“Evangelical” is a very loosely defined term. 1/3 of “evangelicals” as defined by various pollsters voted for Clinton in 1996. When parsed more closely, this turned out to be part of the more pedestrian fact that roughly 90% of blacks voted for Clinton (and whoever else the Democrats ran for office). African-Americans make up a disproportionately large fraction of those classified as “evangelical”. They also tend to belong to churches like Obama’s where abortion is practically a sacrament. Margaret Sanger’s legacy lingers on!
So are these Evangelicals the ones that “cling to their guns and religion”?
It's possible, but I thought only 20% of the evangelical vote was brain dead. Learn something new every day.
Good website post. Most people don’t connect Obama with radical black-hater Margaret Sanger’s philosophy. Good point.
If they are pro-abortion Jew haters, Obama has a lock on their vote.
I doubt their numbers are 40%.
Why would an evangelical vote for Obama...an abortion supporter , Homosexual supporter, a man who only joined a church for political reason, to find out that that after 20 years that his pastors hate of America was not a plus to his being elected?
A devout believer can in no way vote for a pro baby killer like Hussein Osam......Obama!
One would have to be very "well connected" indeed to be able to foretell how people are going to vote.
What is with all the anonymous sources? An anonymous source can and will say anything.
That thought has crossed my mind too.
Any evangelical that votes for a man that endorses abortion up to 9 months needs to have their asses kicked.
Check Out Barack Obama is Not a Christian
That needs to be pointed out. He’s a CINO according to his actions.
Well this will surely be a strange election because i know a whole teamsters shop who is voting for McCain.
agreed...please- if any Evangelical votes for someone who voted to let live birth abortions continue they best never try and preach to me!!
nine months?? try nine months plus- he wanted to let the practice of live birth abortion continue...
The fascination with the charismatic Illinois senator combined with evangelicals effort to not be seen as an appendage of the Republican Party could swing evangelical voters in Obamas favor, predicted Mark DeMoss a prominent public relations executive whose clients include Focus on the Family, Franklin Graham, and Campus Crusade for Christ to Beliefnet.com.
On McCains part, he hasnt done much to reach out to DeMoss either. DeMoss said he has received one phone call from a McCain staffer about a month ago asking if he would like to help campaign for McCain. But the evangelical leader, who had enthusiastically campaigned for former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, turned down the invitation.
If they vote for Obama, they’re not evangelical.
It seems “evangelical’ means different things to different people. I always felt it meant Bible believing, social conservative Christians wanting to spread the Good News. That would mean no Evangelical would consider voting for Obama.
I heard this yesterday, on tv. My guess is that this is another push to put Huckabee, the huckster on the ticket.
McCain has some splainin to do to evangelicals, that is for sure. He needs to leave out the attitude and bridge the gap when it comes to all conservatives, and then follow through on his word to them.
And as for evangelical choices, it would be better to leave the space blank than vote for the false messiah.
Maybe, but McCain sure hasn’t helped himself much in this regard.
Sure, Obama is pro-abortion, but will McCain even have the guts to make it an issue? My guess is that he won’t because it will hurt his Independent/Democrat voter outreach.
My prediction is that many of them will stay home and not vote at all. That holds true for many voter blocs. It is hard to find anyone who is enthused about this election. Many will turn out to vote out of duty but most people need a positive compelling reason to get out and vote. This election may have the lowest turnout in a very long time.
Yes, same here.
Those issues may up the voter turnout, we have some initiated measures here that will need a good turnout.
Yeah, black evangelicals!
No way. Many evangelicals vote along stricter lines than Catholics. Read these links.
Yeah, McCain has shown about as much enthusiasm towards evangelicals as he has towards conservatives.
He’s done nothing but breed suspicion in both groups.
Thank you Salvation.:)
