Pat Robertson endorses Giuliani

Will we see Evangelicals flocking to Rudy because of this endorsement? Somehow I don't think so. The assertion in the first sentence might have been accurate ten years ago.
Pat Robertson, one of the most influential figures in the social conservative movement, announced his support for Rudy Giuliani's presidential bid this morning at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Robertson's endorsement of Giuliani is a significant blow to Mitt Romney, who has worked hard to court evangelical leaders. ... Robertson's support was coveted by several of the leading Republican candidates and provides Giuliani with a major boost as the former New York City mayor seeks to convince social conservatives that, despite his positions supporting abortion rights and gay rights, he is an acceptable choice as the GOP nominee. [emphasis added]
Update: Denny Burke doesn't think Robertson has been very helpful.

    I think an endorsement like this is too early. I also think that this endorsement hurts Dr. Robertson more than it helps Mr. Giuliani.

  2. I think Robertson is a flake. From calling for Hugo Chavez's assassination to seeing God's will in the route of a hurricane, he has frittered away his credibility. I doubt that he influences many Evangelicals any more. I think his endorsement is actually negative for most people.
