Evangelicals will leave the Republican Party if it supports redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, said former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. When asked in a Newsmax interview if he believed the Republican Party would change its position and support gay marriage, Huckabee remarked, "They might, and if they do, they're going to lose a large part of their base because evangelicals will take a walk. ... And it's not because there's an anti-homosexual mood, and nobody's homophobic that I know of, but many of us, and I consider myself included, base our standards not on the latest Washington Post poll, but on an objective standard, not a subjective standard." Evangelicals comprise an important base within the Republican Party; today, about three out of four evangelicals vote Republican.
