Trump and Evangelicals -- A Strange Pairing

Evangelicals love Donald Trump: How a thrice-married New York braggart won them over — and why it’s so scary (Heather Digby Parton) from Salon
"... evangelicals are not that different from other Republicans, in that they are perpetually let down and disappointed by their leaders, but more than anything are just looking for a winner after eight years of living in a liberal horror movie. Apparently, they are just as mad as hell as the rest of the GOP base...  What this religious outreach shows, though, is that Trump has been strategizing this presidential run much more consciously than perhaps anyone realized. It’s hard to know what’s more disconcerting — that Trump is winning because he’s crazy, or that he’s winning because he’s crazy like a fox."
