Massive Turnout of Conservatives Makes

Historic Election Results Possible

Christian Coalition of America President Roberta Combs commented on today’s election results as follows:
“All across our country conservatives went to the polls in record numbers to vote their values, and the result demonstrates the true power of America’s largest voting bloc.”

“They came out in support of candidates who responded to their calls for leadership that will stand against an intrusive and big spending government, and for traditional values.”

“The Republican Party’s leadership would do well to remember that it was the support of conservatives who take their values and the Constitution seriously that made this historic result possible.  These voters will be watching to make sure that they live up to their election promises”, Combs said.

Success of Operation Voter Guide

In the months leading up to the election, the Coalition leveraged the power of the Internet and social media to educate votes with a combination of online advertising in targeted states and viral online tools that empowered conservative activists.

As a result, the Coalition connected with hundreds of thousands of additional conservatives, identified tens of thousands of new activists and our voter guides were seen by millions of voters all across the country.

Within recent months the Coalition has launched new online tools such as:

  • A “Voter Guides” tab for Facebook
  • A “Donate Your Status” application for both Facebook and Twitter
  • A Coalition toolbar for web browsers
  • A voter guide widget, enabling supporters to crowd-source voter guide distribution

Christian Coalition of America is a non-partisan political organization that works to identify, educate and mobilize Christians for effective political action.  Since its inception, the Coalition has produced and distributed over a hundred million voter guides in elections all across America.
