I’m skeptical of this rumor about 3mil evangelicals who supposedly stayed home. Are there any real numbers to back that claim?

Assuming this were actually true, I don’t see why the GOP needs to pander to these single-issue infantile voters next cycle. Considering the consequences at stake in this election, staying home was inexcusable.

Yeah that's the ticket piss them off even more.Just try winning any election when 30,000,000 Evangelicals don't show up . Oh that's right YOU CAN'T WIN ONE STINKING ELECTION WITHOUT THEM.

There you go again. The GOP did not, has not, and will not, pander to evangelicals. Romney stunk as a candidate and the liberals pegged him to the wall. Why is there not one word from the Romney camp about alllllll the vote fraud? How about all those machines calibrated to vote Obama when a Romney vote was cast. The so called Bible belt states voted overwhelmingly for Romney. You have been the one stuck on one single issue.

Considering Bauer doesn't provide a source, I think this qualifies, to use technical terminology, as a "Bald-Faced Lie."

Romney did better than McCain in the "Bible Belt" states.

You know that Evangelicals voted republican by 79%, something not even approached by any other category, and you know that the people that think like you voted in the almost equal percentage (tinier number of course)for Obama, so why are the Evangelicals the "infantile voters"?

OK but don’t be surprised to end up with a Chris Christie or a Colin Powell.

They were 26% of the 131M total in 2008, or 34M. McCain got 74%, or 25M. That means Obama got about 9M.

The final total is not in yet, but it is currently about 123M. Let's say that total ends up at 125M, which is probably on the conservative side. At 78% support, Romney would get about the same number of evangelical votes as McCain.

Using the 125M figure and 22% support, Obama would end up with about 7M.

So there's a couple of million evangelical voters who sat it out, but it cost Obama, not Romney.
