    ...to sway voters.

    “This election signaled the last where a white Christian strategy is workable,” said Robert P. Jones, chief executive of the Public Religion Research Institute, a nonprofit, nonpartisan research and education organization based in Washington.

    “Barack Obama’s coalition was less than 4 in 10 white Christian,” Dr. Jones said. “He made up for that with not only overwhelming support from the African-American and Latino community, but also with the support of the religiously unaffiliated.”

    The Christian Conservative movement in America is starting to wake up to the fact that all of the king's horses and all of the king's men can't put the W 2000-2004 evangelical-led coalition back together again.  

    How does the Christian Conservative movement adapts with the changes in American culture - or do they at all?  This is one of the things I'm fascinated to see play out over the next four years.
