Republican Party "autopsy" blasted for alienating religious base

Our fifth story OutFront – God and politics.

Or rather, a lack of God in Republican politics, as some Christians are now complaining.

After 4 long months, the Republican Party released its autopsy of the 2012 campaign season this week. It went on for nearly 100 pages, detailing what went wrong and what the party needs to do fix it.

But of the 50,000 words, one omission has a lot of people upset tonight: "Christian."

OutFront tonight are McKay Coppins, the political editor for BuzzFeed who also has an article out today on this very subject; Reihan Salam, CNN contributor and writer for the National Review; and Hogan Gidley, the former communications director for Rick Santorum's 2012 Presidential Campaign.
