There was only a single report from the campaign trail. ABC's Jake Tapper offered publicity to James Dobson, the Christian conservative radio talkshow host who runs Focus on the Family, for his criticism of Barack Obama's understanding of the separation of church and state. Obama, in a 2006 speech, insisted that faith-based policies have to be advanced using secular arguments. Dobson characterized Obama as asserting that it is "anti-democratic to believe or fight for moral principles in the Bible that are not supported by people of all faiths." Dobson called Obama's theology "confused" and his interpretation of the Constitution "a fruitcake." Tapper noted that opinion polls show that Obama is currently no more successful at attracting support from white born-again voters than John Kerry had been in 2004.
