Polls Show Ron Paul Winning Iowa's Religious Right

The Iowa GOP caucuses, the home field of the social conservative — where former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee turned out the evangelical vote on his way to a victory, and where noted religious activists can be just the endorsement a campaign needs to win the first state in the primary process. In 2008.

The evangelical vote in Iowa this year has been hard to pin down. Or rather, it’s been moving from candidate to candidate during the various surges in the state, mirroring the more general faction of GOP voters that would like to nominate anyone but Mitt Romney. But as the January third caucuses approach, Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has moved to the top of the heap…presenting pundits with a problem. The conventional wisdom is that Paul can’t or won’t make a play for those voters — that they are strictly the territory of Christian firebrand candidates Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R), and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (R).

This is HUGE

If the evangelicals can escape the stranglehold of propaganda designed especially for them, and presented as the standard "religious" viewpoint (ie we have to kill Muslims for Jesus's sake, to preserve Jesus's flock here at home)

...ANYONE can!

Sucks to be the MSM...

This was the angle they were going to take to explain Santorum's recent 'frothiness' in the polls.

"Give a man a gun, and he could rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he could rob the world."

doesnt stop them from saying it

all ive been hering for the past 2 days is santorum is surging. He wont be last, OMG! the evangelicals are flocking to him. This according to my local news about an hour ago. ugh.

The Pharisees that went after Christ are jealous of Paul.

Like Christ he threatens the corrupt Christian leaders like Bob Vander Plaats who merely want their cut (millions out of the Fed Reserve Funded Campaigns).

The Pharisees and Money changers (the big banks) are the AXIS OF EVIL that seek to put Mitt Romney, Abortionist into power.

Shake your Christian friends and yell at them to WAKE UP!
