One of the mysteries for many observers of the GOP primary season is why evangelical voters have mostly broken for businessman Donald Trump instead of one of their own, like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer on Tuesday said it might be because they've tried voting for people who think like they do, but haven't seen any success.

"My theory of this is that evangelicals having supported [former Arkansas Gov. Mike] Huckabee in the past or [former Pennsylvania Rick] Santorum in the past, others who are like them, they are not satisfied with," he said during election night coverage on Fox News Channel.

In the case of Trump, who has cursed at campaign rallies bungled the names of Bible passages, "they know he is not a guy who is one of them, but he is a guy they think will defend them against an aggressively secular society, squeezing them on all kinds of issues from same sex-marriage to abortion, etc.," Krauthammer said. "They don't care about the values part. They care about protection and defense of being a tough guy. Leadership, strength."
