Evangelicals' Political Power
In order for the Democrat party to become an appealing political choice for evangelical Christians, it will be necessary for the leftist element within the party to stop their efforts to demonize, ridicule, and otherwise marginalize Christianity. I would think that the first step should be an apology, but that's just me.
Another dirty little secret among the evangelical voting public is the well-documented fact that African-American voters, especially the church-going segment, are far more conservative on social issues than Democrats in general, and would find a comfortable home in the Republican party. Overall, a very interesting article.
At the D.C. screening of her daughter's documentary, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., agreed evangelicals wield significant political power. But she would not yield that powerful voting bloc to the Republicans.
"Well, they have an impact in their numbers and their dedication," she tells ABCNEWS.com.
"But there are issues we (Democrats) can connect on, like the environment, global warming and fighting poverty — these are the areas we could work together on," Speaker Pelosi says.
