Pounding the Pulpit

Last night's Republican Primary was a fundamentally uniform:
Around 8 in 10 Mississippians participating in Tuesday's contest were white evangelical or born-again Christians, the largest share measured in any state. Those same voters accounted for nearly three-quarters of those surveyed in Alabama, a proportion reached previously only in Tennessee and Oklahoma.
And then those voters in Mississippi in particular took part in their State's number one "educational activity", browsing and buying pornography.

Perhaps this should have been a bigger campaign issue:
Romney, Santorum and Gingrich promise to ban pornography
The issue even caused Mitt Romney to do something he's never done before, passed up a chance to make a buck, at least once he was caught.

Something many Mississippians hoped to accomplish last night as well.
