How the wheel turns. This weekend’s Faith & Freedom Coalition Summit drew many evangelicals. They were a significant base for Mike Pence and Donald Trump in the 2016 and 2020 elections.

But this year, many chose to support the idea that Mike Pence should not have certified the 2020 election and announced that Joe Biden had sufficient electoral votes to become President of the United States. They felt that Mike Pence should have delayed or named Donald Trump President of the United States.

This means that the people booing were supporting the idea that a single person could void the vote of millions of people, that a single person could change the election votes.

Mike Pence continued his speech and got applause when he named himself as “a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order,” a longtime motto of his. Unfortunately, it appears the hecklers are “a Republican, a conservative, and a Christian”, in that order.

But this reception indicates that Pence does not even have strength of support from a key demographic for President. He should take his book advance and write the book but his political career is likely finished. Trump’s expectation that Pence could have seized control of the electoral college was unfounded, but it appears that several people believe that Pence could have and should have.

   

Any heir apparent other than Trump will likely come from the career politician ranks, Republican congressmen who now have a megaphone, if Trump remains a political force in 2024. And if Trump is not a major force in 2024, then the career politicians that say outrageous things will claim the forefront. And this means that the Evangelical/Christian support may not survive as a force for a single party, but may splinter rather inelegantly.
