Poll: McCain Getting 78% of Evangelicals

A new poll shows that John McCain could receive as many votes from evangelicals as President Bush did in 2004, which many cited as one of the tipping points for Bush's re-election.

A new MSNBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows that McCain has the lead among evangelicals 78 percent to 19 percent. The most recent Pew Research Center survey, however, shows that McCain is getting 68 percent, the same number Bush received in 2000.

Update: Quinnipiac University released new numbers on three swing states where McCain loses slightly in Florida and Ohio but gains in Pennsylvania from a week ago.

Florida: 71-23

Ohio: 59-34

Pennsylvania: 67-27
