Obama yet to win over evangelicals


[Christianity Today UK] 12 Aug 2008--The evangelical community is the only faith segment that Barack Obama has not won the majority support of, a new survey found.

Out of 19 faith communities polled by The Barna Group, all but evangelicals favour Democratic presidential hopeful Obama over Republican John McCain, reveals The Barna Group survey released on Monday.

Among evangelicals (carefully defined by Barna using a nine-question qualification process) who are likely to vote in November, 61 per cent supported McCain compared to 17 per cent for Obama.
