To expand a bit on what BlueTwinks says; the so called "morality" voters aren't really fixated on a word-by-word interpretation of the Bible. They only fixate on the parts that they agree with. There is plenty in the Bible to support peace, pacifism, protection for the environment, aid to the poor and sick. Unfortunately, these things don't fit with the current Republican agenda, so they don't get mentioned so much!
The people who founded this country were very clear about the seperation of church and state. It was one of the foremost reasons that many of them left their homelands to begin with - to escape the persecution of state sanctioned "official" religion. We could sure use a modern day Ben Franklin or Thomas Jefferson now.

    The system benefits the Republicans.
When the Democrats lost the Midwest,that's when the system began to benefit the Republicans.

As for the other red states-what's funny is that neither party really *gets* the South (except for Clinton-he may be a Rhodes scholar,but he's still a boy from a place called Hope.). But that's par for the course in this country. It's either romanticized or ridiculed-I'm speaking from experience,being a native New Orleanian-and neither assumption is accurate,as is the assumption that all Southerners talk alike,worship alike,are racist bigots,are educated alike,should be ashamed to be from the South,etc.

Sorry-pet peeve of mine.
