Jeffers: “evangelicals will not vote for Romney, and they will stay home from the polls all together”
“Mitt Romney’s confusing statements on his support for a ban on abortion are not going to play well with the Evangelical vote, according to David Jeffers, author of Understanding Evangelicals: A Guide to Jesusland,” as reported in a christiannewswire.com story titled Jesusland not S’MITTen with Romney.
… Jeffers likens Romney’s differing stances to a double-minded man that the Book of James warns against: “he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.” (James 1:8) …
… “Mitt Romney’s flip-flopping on abortion shows he is of one mind while in Nevada and then another while on national television.” Jeffers states if conservatives and Evangelicals are going to be intellectually honest they should hold Republican candidates to the same standard they hold Democrat candidates. “Mitt Romney should feel as comfortable in Jesusland as NARAL does,” said Jeffers …
Moreover, Jeffers believes Evangelicals will not vote for Romney, and they will stay home from the polls all together. “Evangelicals believe it is un-Christian to vote against someone,” said Jeffers. Jeffers cites a Rasmussen poll that that 25% of Republicans say they would definitely vote against Romney.
“Romney and other top Presidential contenders are taking the Evangelical vote for granted,” said Jeffers. “Evangelicals won’t choose the lesser of two evils. They won’t choose evil period.”

Biblical studies? What an interesting degree.
Anyway: we concur with Mr. Jeffers, whoever he is, as his sparse-in-argument testimony is at least consonant with many of the themes we have been developing here etc., etc. See, e.g.:
- FreeRepublicans.com: Romney flatly rejected by Evangelicals at Ames; Brownback and Huckabee’s collective totals exceed Romney’s
- Romney confident of duping Evangelicals despite sagging poll numbers
- Romney courts Dobson, fails miserably to persuade
- Etc., etc.
dr. g.d., Romney’s most comMITTed friend and well wisher
