This is a really excellent interview between Emma Green of the Atlantic and Michael Wear, who was the coordinator of Barack Obama’s faith-outreach.
In it, Wear talks about the Democrats’ increasing hostility to and inability to relate to religious audiences. For a long time the Democratic Party has taken for granted that it will always have black voters and will probably get hispanic voters too. But that’s not what we are seeing.
In fact, as the Democrats turn more and more hostile to faith, it is opening the doors for evangelicals to pull minorities of faith out of the Democratic Party.
