      the Pew exit polls for 2010 the other day and found this tidbit. Perhaps they think if they pander to both Catholics and evangelical  fundies they can win. so far for me anyway this is the most regressive election season I've ever seen. separation of church and state seems to have been taken off the table, along with my habeas corpus. the Republican primaries have ratcheted up the 'culture war' to surreal heights of just plain anti-democratic levels.

      Two of the largest religious groups in the electorate followed the same basic voting patterns in the 2010 elections for the U.S. House of Representatives as they have in prior elections: white Protestants voted overwhelmingly Republican and religiously unaffiliated voters cast their ballots overwhelmingly for Democrats. But Catholic voters, who had favored Democratic over Republican candidates by double-digit margins in the last two congressional elections, swung to the GOP in 2010. And within all three of these major religious groups, support for the Republican Party rose this year compared with 2006, effectively matching or exceeding their levels of support for the GOP in any recent election.  

    •  It's always by the numbers with GOP... $ and polls (0+ / 0-)

      They must have imagined a bit of daylight with some Catholic angle... and now they are running with it. only their idea of what will work are from some back shelf and the use by date is from at least a half a century or more ago.

      They must have the same number crunching algorithm geniuses that allow their patrons to game wall street borrowed to help run election strategy simulations or something... but like anything garbage in, garbage out... the short term money extravaganza the number geniuses helped bring about without noticing where it would all go and thereby helped wreck the economy.... I hope any clever number crunching to get short term electoral success instead wrecks he GOP.... their assumptions come from their world vies and those filter the input... I hope they get Roved and Noquisted, Breitbarted and Santorum-farted and roughly fisted by their own projections...
