‘I don’t think the Christian right has declined in politics,’ Roberta Combs, president of the Christian Coalition, a conservative political organisation, told IPS. ‘Evangelicals turned out in record numbers and voted for Mitt Romney, but it just wasn’t enough.’

Yeah, it's just that the agenda you guys force your candidate to adopt is so repulsive to the majority of voters that your candidates will lose free and fair elections in most places.

The Religious Right is not the majority of conservative Christians in the country, never has been. And to some extent, I think they are now representing a smaller group, as their fixed focus on certain issues that are increasingly less compelling to younger evangelical audience gets ever more fixed. (Also, a lot of American evangelicals are now Latino, which adds more interesting factors.)

However, what they are is organized as hell, and with a lot of long-standing access. They're also sophisticated, and hell-bent on getting what R. Reagan promised them and never delivered on.

Don't rule them out, but I do think that their popular appeal is less than it's been in the past, even among evangelical Protestants who vote Republican. Most people just aren't as crazy as these guys.

The country would be better off if the religious right were to lose their influence for good. Anybody who call themselves "christian" and "liberal" are belittled, slandered, and oftentimes even dehumanized by these nuts for not being "true christians" nor "true americans." And nevermind what they think about non-believers like me.

God and Jesus are just magic words for granting power to these self-important, greedy, power-hungry, elitist a-holes! And they don't use it to preach positive lessons like the story of the good samaritan or "let he who has never sinned cast the first stone." No, its always about symbolism, ritual, and some perceived evil in this land for which we must empower these modern-day inquisitors to smite it before God smites us all over it because he loves us so much.

Hateful atavism cloaked in holy robes is the religious right's defining characteristic. If they were to start preaching the more positive lessons, they'd just might become liberals. And we wouldn't want that now, would we? /sarc

What these punters fail to grasp: God allowed Obama to win. And who are they to say that God is wrong?
