Read this article, and also draw on other sources (such as reputable news sources and scholarly articles) to discuss the following questions:

So is America a Christian nation?
How do you predict the role of religion to be in the upcoming November 2016 elections? How will it be different from the last two elections?
If the U.S. population is becoming less and less Christian as the Pew Center dataopens in a new window suggest, why do you think there continues to be an emphasis on and alignment with Evangelical Christians in these early presidential campaign activities?
Is it realistic to expect a person to put aside their religious views and make decisions in the best interest of the country? Or, is this simply rhetoric?
