GOP insider: Religion destroyed my party
A veteran Republican says the religious right has taken over, and turned his party into anti-intellectual nuts
It depends on what you call heavily entwined, accurate statistics are hard to find. Wikipedia said about 68% to 78% of the white evangelical vote went to Bush and that would represent about 23% of the total vote. I don't consider 23% as heavily entwined. Entwined yes but not heavily entwined.
