What does the GOP “wave election” mean for America?
The election results are encouraging, not because a certain political party took control, but because of the many Christian candidates defending Biblical values sweeping into federal and state offices. The GOP made significant gains among minorities on Tuesday, but they need to do even better in 2016 if the radical tide is to be turned.
Voters turned out for their values. Voters turned out to push back radical efforts to attack the sanctity of life, the sanctity of natural marriage, religious freedom and deliberate actions to expand the federal government, to overspend and bankrupt the country. We need great leadership in Washington and our state capitals to make major reforms before it is too late. Voters spoke of the return of states’ rights over the nanny state.
We must pray they will govern the way they campaigned? Do they have the courage and patience to start turning the federal government in the right direction? Let us pray that they do, and let us work to keep their feet to the fire and make them accountable to the people.
SURPRISING ELECTORATE RESULTS FROM RALPH REED:
(Published on National Review Online)
“On Election Day, self-identified conservative Christians made up 32 percent of the electorate and voted 86 percent Republican and only 12 percent Democrat. These voters contributed an astonishing 52.4 percent of all the votes received by Republican candidates. This constituency, the largest and most vibrant in the electorate, is larger than the African-American vote, Hispanic vote, union vote, and gay vote combined. White Evangelicals, meanwhile, made up 23 percent of the electorate and voted 82 percent Republican and 18 percent Democratic, according to the survey. Glen Bolger of Public Opinion Strategies, commented on the findings. ‘Republicans rode the wave last night to stunning victories. Waves come from a committed base and a strong showing among swing voters,’ Bolger said. ‘Voters of faith — Protestant and Catholic — are the foundation of the GOP. Without their overwhelming support, there is no GOP majority. With their support, Republicans are celebrating a high tide in the U.S. Senate, House, and around the country.’”
