* ROBERTSON'S ENDORSEMENT OF GIULIANI RANKLES IOWA CHRISTIAN ACTIVIST
A Christian political activist who spent nearly two years working for Pat Robertson in Iowa is calling Robertson's endorsement of Rudy Giuliani for the Republican presidential nomination "an absolute disgrace." "It's a tremendous letdown," he states. "I think it is kind of like taking the base and hitting them in the gut of the stomach.
Scheffler says that Giuliani lacks the qualities a president should have, especially when it comes to morality. The GOP presidential hopeful, he says is "wrong on the life issue, wrong on the marriage issue, wrong on Second Amendment rights" and leads a lifestyle that is "contrary to where most of us are at."
In addition, Scheffler says he "does not believe for one minute" that Giuliani would nominate strict constructionist judges to the federal bench as he has promised.
* RON PAUL COLLECTING FANS, BIG MONEY
He appeals to a mix of liberals and conservatives who feel alienated and deeply distrustful of the government."Where the extreme left and the extreme right meet, you'll find Ron Paul," said Merle Black, an Emory University political scientist and co-author of the book "Divided America."
* SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES CAST A DEEP FOOTPRINT
Social conservatives are united on issues of life, the Supreme Court, marriage, and Second Amendment freedoms. But, the movement's leaders are independent thinkers who are often slow to rally around a single political standard-bearer. They like to kick the tires. In the GOP presidential primary, social conservatives are already casting a deep footprint.
Four of the movement's leaders recently endorsed their first choice for the Republican nomination. Each picked a different candidate. Each endorsement was newsworthy. And each provided a principled rationale for their decision. All four endorsements and their news coverage demonstrated the sustained influence and importance of social conservatives in the GOP

* ANYONE WHO THINKS PAT ROBERTSON IS A WEATHER VANE FOR RELIGIOUS VOTERS SIMPLY HASN'T BEEN PAYING ATTENTION
The most influential voices in conservative Christianity have excoriated him for his chronic absurdities. Robertson's backing of brutal African dictators such as Liberia's Charles Taylor, his support for political assassination, his assertion that gays and feminists provoked the wrath of God and gave us the attacks of 9/11-- these and other bizarre claims have made him a marginal figure among evangelicals. Faith-based voters might find good reasons to back Rudy Giuliani, but Pat Robertson's endorsement will not be one of them.
