  •  Bush is paying off the leaders of evangelicals (none)
    He is dangling money in the form of his "faith-based initiatives", and actually paying out small amounts to church programs which, in some cases means the minister's salary is secure when it might otherwise be a struggle.  As long as the leaders of these relatively poor churches think they might hit the lottery under Bush, they will preach Republicanism from the pulpit.  A big reason these churches suddenly became 10 x's more political this election than ever before.  And very hard to combat.  Who will a faithful church member listen to--his preacher or a Democratic activist speaking from the heart?
