What Would Jesus Do?

The Seattle Times highlights a new trend among evangelical youth voters:

According to a September 2007 survey by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, 15 percent of white evangelicals between 18 and 29, a group traditionally a shoo-in for the GOP, say they no longer identify with the Republican Party. Older evangelicals are also questioning their traditional allegiance, but not at the same rate.

What is driving the young evangelicals away from the GOP?
"I just keep thinking, if Jesus were alive now, he wouldn't necessarily be voting Republican."
