« Who has a better plan to fix the economic mess? | Main | Obama widens lead over McCain »

Bye Bye Reagan Dems, etc.

Quinnipiac's latest on CO, MI, MN, and WI disclose a few salient points on religious voting blocs.
1. In Michigan, where all Catholics barely split for Kerry 50-49, white Catholics are now backing Obama 55-37. Meanwhile, white evangelicals have gone from supporting Bush 2004 76-24, to preferring McCain 58-32. No wonder McCain kissed the state goodbye.
2. White evangelicals in Dobsonland are hard core. In Colorado they went 74-26 for Bush in 2004. Now they back McCain 78-18.
3. White evangelicals in MN and WI go for McCain 65-29 and 57-38 respectively. All told, Midwestern evangelicals do seem to be softening up for the GOP.

Here is the reason that Obama is ahead in most Polls. Evangelicals think in terms of color, race, bigotry think not; look at the headlines. White Evangelicals behind McCain. Sen Obama thinks, Americans, and we are in need of a non-partisan, Christian that can see all views. God bless your rationale between Christ and Christianity.
