Any Republican candidate who does not support the social issues will be defeated as many conservatives will reject that candidate.

Just ask Bush #1, Dole, McCain, Romney.

Meanwhile, the most pro-abortion president this country has ever seen currently sullies the White House and will quite likely during the next four years replace not only Ginsberg, but Scalia and Kennedy as well.

So, how's that litmus test working out?

Romney had more votes in Bible Belt states than Bush #2 did in 2004, and that’s with all the votes note yet counted, and including Texas, Bush’s home state.

The sorts of things you’d expect to see if there were millions of social conservatives rejecting RINOS simply don’t appear in the vote totals.

Yep! Social conservatives sure taught America a lesson. Let's reject the guy who's 75% conservative for the guy who's 0% conservative.

Poll: Evangelical Vote at Record High in Election

Wednesday, 07 Nov 2012

Evangelical voters reached a record high in Tuesday’s election, with 78 percent of white evangelicals supporting Republican Mitt Romney, a national survey has found.

The survey of 800 voters commissioned by the Faith and Freedom Coalition found that a record 27 percent of those who voted in the presidential election were evangelicals.

Romney’s 78 percent showing among white evangelicals was 10 points higher than Arizona Sen. John McCain’s in 2008.

“Evangelicals turned out in record numbers and voted as heavily for Mitt Romney yesterday as they did for George W. Bush in 2004,” said Ralph Reed, chairman of TK-based Faith and Freedom Coalition. “That is an astonishing outcome that few would have predicted even a few months ago.
