Is the Evangelical Vote in Play?

Are evangelicals ready to bolt from the Republican Party? The Republican Party has long used wedge issues like abortion, gun control, and gay rights to its advantage in rallying conservative voters, but a shifting agenda amongst political evangelicals might be changing the game. David Brancaccio discusses these issues and their implications with Bishop Harry Jackson, Jr. Bishop Jackson, an influential voice among the nation's 60 million evangelicals, has shown a willingness to open his mind to opposing views, especially on climate change.
