If McCain continues to beat Romney and Giulliani and unites all the non-Christian right behind him, does that not mean he wins the GOP nomination and has a good shot at the Presidency?

I also think McCain may be able to pick up some of the non-evangelical populist anti-establishment vote that Edwards also attracts. He is by no means a hard right financial conservative ideologue or a Washington/bib business insider, which is what scares the business wing of the GOP.
McCain has a very short time to demolish Romney and Giulliani before a Huckabee victory becomes inevitable by default. If he fails to do so and the non-evangelical vote remains split, then Huckabee only needs the evangelicals to win.

LAWTON: According to exit polls from the 2000 elections, 60 percent of all people who attend religious services more than once a week voted for Bush. And the more often people worshipped, the more likely they were to vote Republican. Forty percent of Bush's total vote came from evangelicals.
That 40% is not only of Republicans, and epublicans decreased since. Now looking at Iowa:

...Republicans interviewed before they cast their votes ... included nearly 60 percent who identified themselves as evangelical Christians,
...but I forgot about Democrats among the evangelicals when citing the 25% figure:

In the last election, evangelicals made up 26 percent of the electorate, and 78 percent of them voted for Bush.
