Watching MSNBC coverage of the LA primary results. They were showing that evangelicals supported Santorum compared to Romney and that people who make 200K or less heavily supported Santorum.
The word "evangelical" was being batted around a lot. When did the term replace the word Christian? Is this another move to remove Christ just like calling Christmas some other PC term ie Happy Holidays?"I speak three languages. English, sarcasm and sexual innuendo.
Truth is, everybody is going to hurt you. You just gotta find the ones worth suffering for.

Catholics support Romney. Evangelicals support Santorum.
Frankly Santorum always struck me as more of an evangelical than a Catholic anyway, so his lack of support from Catholics is not all that surprising.

It is used to distinguish the bad Christians from the good liberal ones.I am a white, straight, conservative male. How else can I make you mad today?

I don't know Mole.
According to the data I've been able to locate evangelicals in LA only make up 31% of the population...
I really think the term evangelical has been stretched and expanded over the years.
Christian - 90%
Protestant - 60%
Evangelical Protestant - 31%
Historically black Protestant - 20%
Mainline Protestant - 9%
Roman Catholic - 28%
Other Christian - 2%
Jehovah's Witnesses - 1%
Other Religions - 2%
Islam - 1%
Buddhism - 1%
Judaism: less than - 0.5%
on-religious (unaffiliated) - 8%You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.

Also---the term "very conservative" as it appies to voters is influenced to a great extent by social conservatives. For example there are tons of fiscal and national security conservatives who are NOT social conservatives. So the next time you hear pundits say a candidate is winning over most of the "very conservative" vote, it most likely means evangelicals are playing a huge part in those results.
