Religion and the voters!

For those in the media and elsewhere that are trying to downplay the religious vote, I have a little story.

I called a customer service rep. for a problem I had with my DirectTV, and the person who helped me was in Idaho. The poll results in Idaho was Bush 68% or 408,254 votes to Kerry 30% or 180,920 votes.

I asked the person the main reason why Idaho voted for Bush, and he said it was completely an issue with religion! Nothing else mattered to all the people that he talked to and knew. He lived there all of his life. "Bush is pro-religion bottom line," he said. I asked if presidential performance, health care, jobs, terrorism, or the war in Iraq had any influence on the voters that he knew and he said a flat-out "no!"

Can you help us out?
