    Evangelical voters

    2012:: 78% Romney, 21% Obama (26% of electorate)
    2008:: 74% McCain, 24% Obama (26% of electorate)
    2004:: 78% Bush, 21% Kerry (23% of electorate)

    Their aggregate power has waned even as they've furiously tried to get that one jolted again. The calculus changes when you look at the other 74% Notice, in 8 years, there has been little nudging, despite all the temper tantrums. I realize it's a scary topic, but really not that scary once the rock is lifted up.

    Non-evangelical
    2012:: 37% Romney, 60% Obama (74% of electorate)
    2008:: 36% McCain, 62% Obama (74% of electorate)
    2004:: 43% Bush, 56% Kerry (77% of electorate)

    •  They are (0+ / 0-)

      26% of the voters. And they're almost all white, remember.

      If the GOP gets 100% of them and alienates 90% of everybody else, they STILL lose.
