I was preparing to write a post on this topic but in my daily reading on Friday I came across two articles by Jay Cost and David and Nancy French that say it all. The bottom line is that I believe not only will Mitt Romney win the presidency, but he will do it with the overwhelming support of evangelical voters.
This first article is from Jay Cost of The Weekly Standard. Jay is an excellent writer and even mentions another favorite of mine, Sean Trende from Real Clear Politics.
Cost believes that a Romney victory will come because of two reasons:
1) Romney leads among voters who trust him to get our economy back on track
2) Romney leads among independents
The first reason is important because regardless of your personal political or religious convictions, the economy is still front and center for everyone.
The second article is from my friends Nancy and David French who manage the Evangelicals for Mitt website. They paint a clear picture of why Romney could outperform President George W. Bush in support of evangelicals because of the damage President Obama has done to America’s social fabric. Read it here.
