godrepublican.jpgSpiritual Politics notes that the new CBS News poll shows that McCain’s support among white evangelicals has gotten a nice lift from convention week:

66% of white evangelicals are now backing McCain, up from 57% this weekend.

Barack Obama’s evangelical support is down at 18-percent. That’s a smaller share of evangelical votes than John Kerry got in ’04 or Al Gore got in ’00.
So much of the news media’s coverage of evangelicals these last few years has centered on their broadening agenda and increasing openness to the Democrats. Is the real story that evangelical support for Republicans is more hardened than ever?
