How Many Evangelicals?
The Associated Press says, "One in four voters were white born-again evangelical Christians."
It's unclear if how much the news service is rounding. In 2004 evangelicals were 24 percent of the vote. (In 2000, exit polls asked voters whether they were part of the religious right, not whether they were evangelicals. 14 percent said yes.)
So regardless of the turnout story, it looks like evangelicals came out in about the same percentage as they did four years ago.
