Why would it be surprising that atheists would tend to support the opposition of evangelical Christians? Evangelical Christians are some the best recruiters for atheists.

That didn’t surprise me. What surprised me was how large a segment of the voting population Atheists constitute. All everyone has been talking about is how the GOP needs to reach out to Hispanics, but Atheists constituted a larger segment of the electorate and gave Obama a bigger voting margin than Hispanics did.

It amazes me that conservatives still believe this formula will win them statewide and nationwide elections.

Reality denial virtually defines the modern GOP.

And recruiters to Islam as well. On my Imam’s FB, I notice a steady trickle of Converts. A number are military members.

Of course my own background is a weird one and how I got there.

That, and the Holy Order of the Gerrymander will carry the day for them.

Excuse my denseness, but just to check…. I’m having trouble parsing your language:

For Romney, white evangelicals gave him nearly a fifteen point margin over Obama (26% of the electorate which he won 78-21), while Obama got a whopping 17 point margin from everyone who isn’t a white evangelical (74% of the vote which he won 60-37).

I get that you’re saying that white evangelicals were 26% of the electorate, and that Romney won that vote by 78%-21% - but what do you mean when you say that they gave him “nearly a fifteen point margin over Obama?” When you’re saying “margin over,” do you mean relative to a 50/50 split?

It seems that view would be consistent with this statement —

while Obama got a whopping 17 point margin from everyone who isn’t a white evangelical (74% of the vote which he won 60-37).

In that the difference between 60 and 37 is 33, and if you half 33, you get @ 17?

On the other thread - you said that Obama won the vote from whites who aren’t evangelicals - do you have a link to where that is broken out? I see white evangelicals as compared to “everyone else,” but I’m not sure where to see the stats of whites who aren’t evangelicals.

BTW - this article has some interesting stats:

[Link: www.pewforum.org…]

Part of what I find interesting is the marked difference between white Protestants and White Catholics - in that support for Obama dropped in the later group (relative to 2008) but not in the former.
