The Iowa GOP: Creationist Strength [Eric]

More

Think about this. The combined vote total at Ames for Mike Huckabee, Sam Brownback and Tom Tancredo the three candidates who have professed to not believe in evolution was 47.1% among these core GOP activists in Iowa.

Sure, there must been some science-based people who voted for these faith-based candidates. But there were probably just as many creationists, if not more, voting for the publicly evolutionist candidates.

And we trust these same Republican activists to run the Iowa caucus, where they'll pick the man who could be the next president?
