God made one fleeting appearance at the Republican debate last night, when (surprise!) Mike Huckabee said, “[P]eople in this country I think are grateful to God they’re in a land that people are trying to break into and not one they’re trying to break out of.” Now that caucus and primary results have come in from states around the country, the main religious questions in the GOP race–how does the white evangelical base of the party respond to Romney and to Huckabee?–have become empirical rather than speculative, answerable via the exit polls. It would be a nice irony next Tuesday if evangelicals, streaming away from Huck as an also-ran, were the ones to keep the Romney candidacy alive.
