[The Christian Post] 31 Oct 2008--Christian evangelicals and conservatives are not only largely supporting Republican candidate John McCain, but their support has actually increased, according to a newly released survey.
Crosswalk.com, the largely popular Christian web portal affiliated with faith-based media giant Salem Communications, polled its email subscribers this week and found a three-point increase (from 80 to 83) in support for McCain over the past month and a one-point decrease (from 13 to 12) in support for Democratic candidate Barack Obama.
The 979 users who responded to the survey were also found to be largely supportive of GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who had electrified the conservative base after being tapped for the spot in August. While two percent said they no longer supported the Alaska governor as a candidate, about 20 percent said they favored her more as a candidate than they did a month ago.
“Although Sen. Barack Obama’s lead over Republican candidate John McCain has reached double-digits in some states, the Democratic candidate has yet to convince Christian conservatives,” Crosswalk noted.
