    While his popularity hasn't dropped, despite scandal and stupidity, do you think we are seeing a demoralization among his supporters that may affect turnout?

    I don't necessarily agree that Christianity (or something like it) couldn't have arisen. With no Rome, the Greek successor states would probably have stuck around, and the fact is that the sectarian...
