AP Poll Scary for True Conservatives

WASHINGTON, ( -- In looking at the latest AP poll Christians in America have a great deal to be concerned about in the 2008 Presidential elections.

This AP Poll showed only 6% of those contacted considered morality an important characteristic for a Presidential candidate. The same poll showed 4% said it was important for a candidate to do what he promised he would do during his campaign.

Scarier yet for all conservative Americans, was that only 4% said it was important for the Presidential candidate to believe in God. Does that mean 96% of the people polled said that it was OK for a Presidential candidate to be an atheist? Today it seems to be okay to lie to the public, to have sexual affairs and to steal from the people while you are in an elected office.

Don Swarthout, President of Christians Reviving America's Values, CRAVE, said, "If this poll is accurate then Christian values will not play a role in the 2008 Presidential elections. We have silently watched the world become unconcerned over so many Christian issues. I think this lack of concern is because there are so many issues for Christians today that they don't know which way to turn. Also, the other side appears to be winning so much of the time."

Some people say that the Republican Party has not put forth a truly conservative candidate which the religious right can really get behind. On the other hand this poll shows very little support for conservative values. Christianity today apparently is more concerned about the differences between themselves than they are about the things which they agree upon.

One thing is for certain the Presidential election for 2008 has already started. If you are waiting to get involved in a year or so, you will not have anything to say about who the candidates are. If you want to have anything to say about who the candidates are you had better get involved right now.

Otherwise it appears we will have a choice between Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton. That choice is fine if you want a ticket without a true conservative for whom to vote. True conservatives need a Sam Brownback, Fred Thompson, Mike Huckabee, Duncan Hunter or a Tom Tancredo on the ticket.

"You have to be looking at states like New York, California and New York if you want a true conservative in the primaries. If you want to know what to do it takes time and money and time is running out," Swarthout said.
