Democrats wonder why they have difficulty finding support among Religious voters.

“But it should also include — it should also include other, you know, information about contraception because, look, I’ve got two daughters. 9 years old and 6 years old,” he added.

“I am going to teach them first of all about values and morals. But if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby,” Obama said.

Barrack Obama, April 2008

Democrats wonder why they have difficulty finding support among Religious voters.

But, in just two short years, the left has become sluggish in its courtship of religious voters, significantly scaling back its faith-outreach programs. While many factors—primarily the economy—doomed the Democrats this fall, the consequences of this abdication nevertheless seem to be severe. In the recent midterm elections, House Democrats lost white evangelical voters in greater numbers than they did in 2004, when “values voters” flocked to George W. Bush. Reversing their Democratic allegiance from the past two elections, Catholics—nearly a quarter of all voters—favored the GOP 54 to 44 percent. Compared to 2008, the drop-offs were steep: a 20-point decline with Catholics, a 14-point decline with white evangelicals, and a 10-point decline with white Protestants. How and why did this happen?

“How and why did this happen?”

Are they serious?

Apparently, Democrats can’t wrap their minds around the idea that when your core beliefs (as much as Liberal Democrats have core beliefs) revolve around things that are the opposite of  the vast majority of religious doctrine you are going to have difficulty gaining support from Religious groups.

Issue by issue, the Democrat agenda is openly hostile toward religion: Abortion on demand, harvesting unborn children for failed ‘scientific’ experiments, defining marriage as anything the left wants at any time,  euthanasia and wiping God from every corner of the Republic.

Its astounding that Democrats have any support from religious voters.

    I think your last line is the crux of the problem. Dems have always nonsensically had support from religious groups that they can’t understand why all of a sudden the sheep don’t follow the messiah.

    Great post! The left/dems/progs are really quite tone-deaf. They have no, nada, none, zippo hint of how most of us think, believe, and feel. Quite frankly, I’m with you on your last sentence: I truly don’t understand how any Christian can vote for any democrat.

    Great blog!

      Thanks for the kind words and for stopping by.

      It is amazing how the Dem’s can be so flip towards Religious voters and even more unbelievable how some Religious voters support Dem’s.
