Though secular media outlets have reported on an about-face in the "God vote" throughout this election season as more Christians side with Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama, a recent poll of pastors indicates otherwise when it comes to Christian leadership. The survey, conducted in early October by LifeWay Research, found that 55 percent of Protestant pastors plan to vote for John McCain, compared with only 20 percent for Obama. (Another 22 percent were undecided at the time of polling.) Among evangelical pastors the difference was even more pronounced, with 66 percent supporting McCain and 13 percent voting for Obama. Mainline pastors, however, showed a tighter race as 37 percent plan to vote for Obama, 36 percent support McCain and 24 percent are undecided. [Baptist Press, 10/30/08]
