Who Won The Most Evangelicals In The New Hampshire Primary? The Answer Is...

The Iowa Caucus was Ted Cruz' night, with a large evangelical voter turnout credited with handing him a 28% victory over Donald Cruz at 24%. But it was a different story last night in New Hampshire, where primary voters gave Trump a massive lead with 35% over Cruz' 12%. Did Cruz still get more evangelical votes than Trump? Or did they just not show up?

According to the Christian Post, Trump actually secured the highest percentage of evangelical voters at 27 percent of them while Cruz only held onto 23%. Marco Rubio managed to get 13% ahead of John Kasich who was left with 11%.

In contrast, Cruz secured a full third of the evangelical votes in Iowa. One of the big differences between the states is that two-thirds of the voters who showed up at the Iowa Caucuses identified themselves as evangelical while only a quarter of the voters in New Hampshire did.

How big of a role do you think evangelicals will play in the Feb. 20 South Carolina Republican Primary?
