It's odd because I don't know any fundamentalist idiotic americans at all, but they definitely do have a big voting block.
The problem is that there are non-fundamentalist christians who still believe that the US is or should be a "christian nation" rather than a secular one as described as Obama in that speech.
Due to the two party system, people get divided by party over some of the most arbitrary issues. If we had more parties having a chance at making a dent in the voting count then we'd see parties being more marginalized when they choose to focus on issues that most people don't care about.
