How Evangelicals Voted- Survey Results to Debut Today

“The best is yet to come,” Obama said in last night’s victory speech.

After last night’s election victory by Barack Obama, the survey results regarding Christian voting trends are almost in- this according to one of today’s headlines from Religion Today, citing as its source the The Christian Post.

Apparently, the post-election survey of Christians, including evangelicals and voters across denominational lines, will be released later today by the the conservative Christian group, Faith and Freedom Coalition.  By first impressions it would seem evangelicals’ love affair with the Republican party is alive and well.

Religion Today writes: “Prior to the election, FFC founder Ralph Reed used his coalition to mobilize grassroots activists nationwide to get Christian voters to the polls. The coalition said it distributed 30 million voter guides in 117,000 churches, sent out 24 million pieces of mail, made 23 million get-out-the-vote calls, made over 122 million voter contacts to ‘evangelicals, faithful Catholics and other voters of faith,’ and sent 18 million text messages and emails.  The post-election survey will detail the share of the electorate that the FFC reached, how they voted, and why they voted as they did. The FFC plans to hold a news briefing at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday to discuss the survey in order to show the impact of the evangelical vote and other faith-based voters on the outcome of the election.”

Hmm…
