“Exit polling released through CNN revealed Protestant Christians (including evangelicals and Mainliners of all races), who made up 53 percent of the electorate, voted 42 percent for President Barack Obama and 57 percent for former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.”
I understand the theological reservations that evangelicals have about Mormons and yes, I can understand how some evangelicals had problems with Romney’s record on social issues.
But seriously - 42% voted for Obama?!
What were they thinking - that by voting for Obama, they’d bring the End Times on faster?!
If I were an evangelical and had serious problems with Romney, serious enough to not wanna vote for him, I’d have let that race go blank on my ballot.
“If I were an evangelical and had serious problems with Romney, serious enough to not wanna vote for him, Id have let that race go blank on my ballot.”
It appears that is what many of them did or did not even come to the polls. I was afraid of that early on when many on this forum stated they would never vote for a Morman or a Rino. I thought that they would come to their senses by Election Day, but I guess not.
It was turnout that beat us in the end.
I didn’t vote for him, left my ballot blank on that line. Wasn’t because he was Mormon though I suppose that could have been a reason for some.
I said I wasn’t going to vote or work on behalf of an unprincipled opportunistic Massuchusetts Liberal and I meant it. Never once did he offer me any hope he could be counted upon to do anything that would reverse the trajectory of this country. Not socially, not religiously, not economically and he hadn’t a clue what he was talking about on foreign affairs. He wanted the glory of being “president” for the sake of it. That just isn’t good enough.
