The Evangelical Choice?

Some interesting statistics from Christianity Today
41% White evangelicals who say they are unhappy that the Democrats won the midterm election.
41% White evangelicals who say they are happy that the Democrats won.

Who'd a thunk it? Evangelicals look a lot like the rest of the Country did in 2000 and 2004, split down the middle. So the question is is this a lagging indicator of the political mood of the country or are we seeing a new equilibrium?

More interesting numbers:
50% Black Protestants who say their churches offered election materials.
30% White evangelicals who reported this.

Believe it or not most White Evangelical churches are fairly apolitical (if you think Dobson is hard on politicans, you ought to hear him talk about pastors)
