There's no doubt about it every Bill -- this year's tight presidential race and one voting bloc that could make a big differences evangelicals.
Now one man is unleashing -- get out the evangelical vote operation hoping to drum up support for governor Romney.
-- is the founder of faith and freedom coalition he was also senior advisor to bush Cheney campaigns he joins us nice to see you Ralph.
Good to be really dreaded tax.
-- -- I learned that you have a database of seventeen point one million which is giant I'm curious what are you saying to that seventeen point 19 as -- the reason why they should come out and vote for governor Romney.
Well what we're doing -- is his first of all we've engaged in a massive voter registration effort.
There were seventeen million evangelical Christians.
Who didn't bother to go to the polls for years ago when Barack Obama was elected.
About half of those because they were registered to vote about half were registered to vote didn't bother to come.
So the first thing we focused on end and voter registration continues in most states.
-- October 6 or ninth in some states like Wisconsin you can go all the way through Election Day.
We're making sure that at a minimum they're registered their inform their educate second thing we're doing Greta is we're distributing over 51 million copies.
Of a nonpartisan voter guide that shows were Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.
Stand on 1010 key issues from economy jobs taxes and spending.
Health care marriage.
The right to life and other key issues.
Including the Obama mandate on religious charities which will be devastating.
To many not only Catholics -- Protestants hospital -- colleges universities.
And schools and every one of these -- -- his -- noted.
It's either in their own words are off their website or it's office speech they give.
Gave her -- -- they wrote or it's 9% in their words and we're gonna let the voters make the decision.
What do you want the evangelical and there are some out there who say -- Well he's a Mormon.
Well I I think first of all you -- article six to the constitution which says that there's no religious test to serve in public office and we were the first nation in the history of western civilization.
To say that you couldn't prohibit somebody from serving in office because they were -- Baptist -- they were Catholic or they were Jewish.
-- -- governor Romney's case because he's a member of the church of latter day saints.
And I just feel very strongly about that and I think furthermore if you look at the polling and Greta this often isn't understood but if -- actually look at that.
Pew research data you look at the Gallup data.
Does bias in the bigotry.
Against a Mormon candidate is much more on the left and it is on the right.
It's mostly secular -- who left of center voters.
-- opposition to the social values of mormons much more than it is evangelical Protestants.
I was -- read his numbers of 20% spend the electorate in 2008 were evangelicals which is a giant percent I'm curious is are doing your analysis your state by state breakdown of their seventeen point one million.
Database going to -- the impact in -- swing states -- -- actually analyzed impact in the also important swing states.
Well we have -- and I think if you look at the did that before -- these voters are to be found its Florida Ohio Virginia and North Carolina.
And if you look at every one of this.
You know Ohio Romney's trailing probably by an average of four points.
But but Florida there's a new poll out this weekend Miami Herald poll conducted my Mason Dixon.
It's 48 Obama 47 Romney and Brad Coker the pollster says ground game will decide it.
Virginia effectively tied North Carolina effectively tied.
In every one of those states Greta we believe we're going to be able to increase.
-- evangelical turnout from the 2000 and a baseline by an average of about 7%.
And when that happens there's going to be a lot of shocked faces and a lot of newsrooms all across America.
So I just take Ohio for its -- -- it's just take 118 electoral -- that's.
You think that you have enough.
That they're not some evangelicals who have not been content sort of in this poll that weren't gonna voter never gonna vote for president about what you think that you can get to them to make the difference in that state for instance.
I do and you know the interesting thing about this Friday is is here we are in the age of the Internet.
You know cable TV Smartphones.
You know tabloids and and all this amazing technology.
And where has all this technology taking us it's taken us to an air war of mutual assured destruction.
We're both sides are throwing hundreds of millions of dollars each other.
And it's basically come -- a draw and what's gonna decide the outcome of this election left right and center.
Among Republicans Democrats is wells independents.
Among voters of faith and among all voters.
Is who knocks on more doors who makes more phone calls to burns more shoe leather who -- more door bells.
And whom and who gets more people to the polls I promise you that that is what will decide the outcome of election.
It's very counter -- it's back to the future but that's what this is all taken -- -- him.
Well thank you so -- You -- Greta good to be.
