    Maybe better said "divided". With the various GOP primary candidates vying to pick votes from the hapless Iowan Evangelical brigade, it's anything goes...

    GOP hopefuls likely to split Iowa evangelical vote

    I have to feel sorry for the Evangelicals & their state of confusion. On one hand there's Gingrich painting himself a 'family values' man... but in all reality he's well known as a two timing womanizing user on his 3rd marriage.
    Santorum sounds good & has a successful married Christian relationship but comes across as part slick loan shark/used car salesman. Ron Paul is a Baptist but wisely keeps religion & politics separate... to the dismay of the Evangelicals. Michele 'little Mary' Bachmann rides the Evangelical ticket like a bitch in heat but appears to lack knowledge where it is needed the most. Perry seems a sincere Christian but comes across as an affable boob. Jon 'the robot' Huntsman is a talented & VERY knowledgeable statesman(most underrated candidate) but is a practicing Mormon. Romney bats a 2nd base hit by offering the Evangelicals both Mormonism & his patented flip flopping at such a grandiose scale as to totally dazzle the minds of all that have ever heard him double speak.
    It's small wonder that the Iowan Evangelicals don't know whether to shit or go blind as far as picking out a GOP candidate. I mean they have a self professed Christian womanizer, a slick 'I got a bridge to sell ya' looking candidate, a christian woman that does not know what she's doing, a Baptist that believes in separation of church & state, an affable boob Christian, & the two Mormon boys. I'd suggest the Evangelicals keep their faith out of the political arena & vote Paul for Constitutionally based government & individual liberties... but the Evangelicals seem to think their on a mission. Anyone seeing a particular GOP candidate the Evangelicals will start swarming to during the next week?

    Newt is toast. His buffoonery is displayed in VA. This is a book tour for Newt.


    Rick knows DC, he was a good conservative Senator, (with none of Ron Paul's baggage)


    Michele is not presidential timber, and we all know it.


    And is way too weird to be elected to a national office, besides he's not just weird, he's "old weird".



    Its Mitt and the also ran. Trust me, if Mitt doesn't win Iowa, Iowa will NOT be batting lead-off in 2016.

    Its not about "hot buttons" or "litmus tests", its about winning in November. Got anyone besides Mitt who can beat BO? Didn't think so.

    Thats an oxymoron. Just post a few positions and you will see that church-goers can't be too liberal.

    Do people realize there are plenty of socialist evangelicals??

    The notion that bible thumpers are all "republican" is nonsense. There are plenty that are quite conservative but socialist...

    Rev. Michael Pfleger is a perfect example of my assertion...

    Why would they do that? We currently have a Constitutionally based government and Paul’s advocacy of the myth of ‘states’ rights’ would jeopardize individual liberties, leaving the people at the mercy of capricious and overreaching state governments and local jurisdictions.

    No, the evangelicals are screwed whomever they select, including Paul.

    You can have the socialist Catholic priest demographic, especially in Iowa. Evangelicals are not generally socialist. Similar to all blacks are not democrats.

    We have a bill of rights dummy...

    So how would a state jeopardize civil liberties when they use the Tenth Amendment to self govern??

    I mean its only the Tenth Amendment that grants you your civil liberties and grants the states to self govern...

    WTF.....
