Not hard to see or predict the outcome of this poll.
LOL, there was just a thread claiming just the opposite.
Of course this was religious minded voters whatever that means.
I’m an atheist for McCain. They didn’t even ask me.
I have a hard time believing anyone who is Christ-centered would support Obama or any other liberal, for that matter.
Same thing applies for Catholics, regardless whether they are Hispanic or identified by whatever other word is tacked onto “Catholic.” The abortion issue should nip that in the bud.
Using those numbers on a sample of 1500 people would result in the following:
“Religious” covers a lot of territory. For example, I would imagine that support would be near-unanimous for Baraq among muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, new agers, rustlers, cutthroats, murders, bounty hunters, desperados, mugs, pugs, thugs, nitwits, halfwits, dimwits, vipers, snipers, con-men, Indian agents, Mexican bandits, muggers, buggerers, bushwhackers, hornswogglers, horse thieves, bull-dykes, train robbers, bank robbers, ass-kickers, sh**-kickers, and Methodists!
Well, of course they do. Obama favors killing babies who survive an abortion. People of faith find that absolutely appalling.
Uh...well, better the devil you know...? Neither one of them is as transparent as Dubya WRT beliefs.
No Compromises: Kansas State Bishops Declare Voting for Abortion Candidate is “Evil”
By Peter J. Smith
Just way to disguise that fact it cuts more along racial lines than religion..
Many do not want a Muslim in charge, like my parents.
Or put another way...
"Godless Voters Favor Obama"
Sooooo many bitter people.
It's getting past the time when Christians, who are tired of holding their noses time and time and time again in order to vote for the "lesser of two evils," need to seriously consider putting an effort into the creation of a new party, or giving their support to an existing party like the Constitution Party, that is truly conservative and strictly constructionist in its Constitutional philosophy. This might involve the effective concession of elections to a high proportion of Democrats for a term or two in places where the tide could go either way. But, at the rate we are going, it is quickly getting to the point where there is no real difference between candidates anyway. If we could reform under honest principles, a real impetus for change would be driven into the hearts of the machine Republicans, since they could not win an election anywhere without the Christian base they've smugly taken for granted for decades.
But, sadly, the chances of this happening are next to nil. Most of the conservatives who bother to vote will put on their happy-smiley faces when asked about McCain, and will vote for him "to stop Obama." Stopping Obama, in and of itself, is a laudable goal! But continuing to let the Republican Party front these terrible candidates will, over time, only serve to ensure that nothing but Obama-types get the nod from either party.
Eight years. I give this country eight more years before all of the stuff that naive Christians have been trying to forestall takes root as normative, never again to even have a chance at being uprooted. Christian ideals are dying in this country because next to no one is willing to take bold action to wake up the beltway Republicans who collect their paychecks and don't give a rat's tail about principles. Eight years. On the outside...four wouldn't be out of the question.
This is from a month ago after the Gallup from June you cited. I am confident it has continued to move in McCain’s direction since. While Zogby’s methodology may be “sloppy” - no I am not a big fan of his - the trend is clear.
