The Democratic National Committee has wasted little time putting together an attack ad on McCain and gambling. Brody thinks it could work with evangelicals, and on such matters his opinion is worth paying attention to. I have my doubts though. While It’s generally believed that reports on George W. Bush’s drunk driving hurt him with evangelicals in 2000, McCain is a much better known quantity, and most evangelicals have already made up their minds who they’re voting for. But as always in a close election, a percentage point here or there in a swing state can make a big difference.
