Evangelicals Bypass McCain for Libertarian Barr or Constitutional Baldwin?

Evangelicals. Torn on voting for John McCain, according to a guest journalist on Fox 'n Friends who was asked about recent polling?

Then they'll really be torn on voting for Bob Barr if they relinquish voting for McCain in the General Election.

Barr is a former U.S. Congressman who left office a few years ago. He switched his party affiliation in 2006 to Libertarian, and subsequently promoted himself as holding many Libertarian positions.

Unclear: does he hold the prevailing, majority, position on the right to choose on the abortion issue adopted by a larger percentage of Libertarian Party members.

These are staunch Libertarians. They don't proclaim one stance one day, and another the next day.

There has been contention among Libertarians on the issue of abortion over the years with a contingency of members right to lifers.

But Barr has never supported abortion, partial abortion, or the woman's right to choose in any personal instance?

What has he said to Libertarians that they were convinced during their convention process to nominate Barr over several other candidates?

One woman has been a Libertarian Party member and supporter for some 30 years.

The question shouldn't be whether Libertarian Barr can eke out some points to take away votes that otherwise would go to John McCain.

The question should be whether conservative nominee of the Constitutional Party can.

Evangelicals who otherwise were registered Republican and overall supportive of a conservative Republican, including Bob Barr, may ignore both Barr and McCain in the General Election, should they turn out to vote, and vote for Chuck Baldwin.

Notice the media is ignoring Baldwin.

It's not puzzling why. he doesn't have near the "name recognition" Bob Barr has and the media is reluctant to prop up anyone outside the political loop so to speak or that candidate might rise in the public's attention.
