Are the Evangelicals an Ethnic Group?

By Ronald R. Stockton

Abstract

The thesis of the paper is that at the core of the Evangelical political movement is the Scots-Irish ethnic group. The Scots-Irish are often mis-characterized as a religious group. The paper discusses Evangelical political positions and compares them with Scots-Irish culture and political thinking. The author suggests that the Scots-Irish are a key element of American politics. Any party that can win half of their states can win the Presidency
