This guy lists a lot of stats to try and prove that evangelicals would not have swung the election. However, his most important stat was the first one he mentioned.

In fact, white evangelicals/born-again Christians made up the same percentage of the electorate as they did in 2008 – 26%.

If 75% or 85% of evangelicals had voted instead of 26%, I think there would have been a different result. Shame on professing Christians who claim the name of Christ but refuse to exert themselves when biblical truths are so blatantly under attack. 

Why is it that my voice always seems to be loudest when I am saying the dumbest things?

I don't think he's saying 26% of evangelicals voted.  He is saying that of all register voters that exist, 26% of them are evangelicals.

It's not clear what the author meant.  His barrage of statistics is meaningless.  My guess is he believes that too many Christians voted.

The country has changed, folks.  Let's just deal with it.  The problem is/was not a better "get out the vote" campaign.
