I am identifying "Christian Conservatives" as an organized voting block group. I identify myself as a Christian. I also identify myself as a conservative politically. But as a part of the group that follows leaders such as James Dobson and Ralph Perkins, I would not call myself a Christian Conservative. I disagree with the voting block on several issues including the legal status of abortion and the need for a gay marriage amendment.Originally Posted by Rattus;2624985;
Consider it this way -- if a majority that far over 50% from the numbers you quoted were Christian Conservative voters, then elections in this country woud not really ever be close.
But I think that the point Bee Stung Lips made is a very relevant one to this discussion -- the viewpoints of the panel members on The View matter a great deal with regards to the original point of Elisabeth and Sherri going against the grain. Especially before Sherri came along, Elisabeth's views were certainly out of the norm on The View panel. It could be argued that some on the panel were hostile towards such views. So in that environment, going against the grain means something all together different.
