I wonder if the Mormon factor quietly dissuaded a lot of fundamentalists, too. So they did not vote for anybody for president.
I honestly don’t think so. Ralph Reed says that evangelicals turned out in record numbers.
That is certainly my personal experience, though I recognie the limits of that.
I had two relatively conservative co-workers (both Southern Baptists) who proudly proclaimed they voted for Obama because “Romney didn’t believe in Jesus” and “Republicans just pretend to be pro-life.”
I was stunned. Granted, I live in Missouri and Romney did very well state-wide.
