Reports The Boston Globe:
Romney may not be the first choice of evangelicals, Falwell said, but “so much is at stake in this election they see that Romney is on the right side of the issues. I’ve seen that here.” He said there were a lot of students “who had nothing good about Romney in the spring” who now are among his most vociferous supporters.
As a result, Falwell said, “I definitely believe that the evangelical Christians will make the difference in the Virginia ballot.” And Falwell is helping to make sure that difference starts at his school, which strongly encourages voter registration.
Falwell estimated that 80 percent of the school’s 12,000 students are registered to vote — Liberty has its own precinct — and surveys have found that the vast majority support Romney. Many students joined registration efforts across the state, amplifying Liberty’s influence.
