Abstract: The Religious Right shifted from an organization that backed a candidate who shared their beliefs to one who would take action on social issues. This group that has become such a strong supporter of the political Right once helped elect a liberal progressive Democrat from Georgia. But Ronald Reagan offered them the legislative action they wanted and the group seized the opportunity to form a type of alliance with the political right. This powerful group of Evangelicals looking to change America became known as the Religious Right.
