Buckeye evangelicals

While I don’t doubt the anecdotal evidence that white evangelicals are more in play this year than they’ve been in several election cycles, the evidence for party switching, based on these polls, has to be considered inconclusive. At this point, the folks at Faith in Public Life, Sojourners, and the Center for American Progress Action Fund have no plans for another such poll, but according to spokeswoman Katie Barge, hope springs eternal. My suggestion is to go for North Carolina–and ask the Democratic primary voters whether they normally vote Democratic in presidential elections. That would give at least some indication if switching there be.
