Evangelical Turnout

As I noted before, evangelical turnout is, about the same percentage of the electorate that it was in 2004. But when you consider that turnout overall is reportedly way up, 2008 may have seen evangelicals voting in higher numbers than ever before.

Dan Gilgoff has noticed that in some areas, evangelical turnout is significantly up from 2004: In Indiana, evangelicals went from 35 percent of the electorate to 43 percent.

Remember when everyone was warning that evangelicals would stay home if McCain was the Republican nominee?
