Undecided evangelicals

The latest CBS poll has white evangelicals choosing McCain over Obama 58 percent to 24 percent, with 15 percent undecided. If the undecided break 50-50, that would give Obama nearly one-third of the white evangelical vote–a big improvement over Kerry's performance in 2004. For him, opportunity knocks.
