Evangelicals Not A Republican Lock

Is it a temporary blip in evangelical opinion or a trend that will help the Democrats? Either way, this kind of polling data looks troublesome for Republicans come November.
DALLAS (Reuters) - American evangelicals remain more Republican than Democratic but are not locked tightly in the embrace of either party, according to a new survey released on Monday by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.

The chief trouble for Republicans will come when more evangelicals simply conclude it isn't worth their time to go to the polls. Sure, some will vote Democrat, but most of us can't stomach Democratic positions on abortion and a few other issues. So the ones who can't stand the thought of voting for John McCain (and there are quite a few) will most likely just sit this one out.

I'll vote McCain, even though I don't think very much of him at all, at least as a politician. No matter how bad my choices are, there is always one that isn't quite as noxious as the other, and that's the one who'll get my vote.
