This article states the following about evangelicals that caught my attention:
Evangelicals represent just one out of every six born again adults.
7% of the national population of adults are evangelicals
Two-thirds of evangelicals are aligned with the GOP
1 out of 5 are Democrats
And then there was this nugget: Most remarkably, however, was the overwhelming support registered among evangelicals for Republican candidate John McCain. In total, 88% voted for Sen. McCain, compared to just 11% for Sen. Obama. The 88% is statistically identical to the 85% of evangelicals who backed George W. Bush in 2004.
I think some of my friends don’t know me very well since some of them send me a lot of negative stuff about Democrats.Â I can deal with that, and they probably just don’t know here I stand politically.Â But I would think some of them would know me well enough to know I would not appreciate Obama jokes that include a black man knocking on a door and presidential assassination references.Â Just tasteless.
I had to get some of my medical records yesterday and saw that my doctor posted something in his waiting room that listed the dangers of Obama.
Locally, and not just stuff that is reported on the news, I hear of a lot of fear of the Obama presidency.Â Such is life in a red state I guess.Â A lot of what I hear is coming from children, and I’m pretty sure I know where they are getting their information.
If there is a lot of fear here in North Texas over Obama, I wonder what the mood is like in the Deep South.
I finally finished that Newsweek article Secrets of the 2008 Campaign.Â Absolutely fascinating.Â You’ll learn a lot of inside stuff.Â It’s like a little book.Â There are seven chapters, and the chapters range from five to eight pages.
