Poll: 31% Of White Evangelicals Support Trump No Matter What He Does
The Public Religion Research Institute has released its 2019 American Values Survey, which found 31% of white evangelicals will support Trump no matter what he does.
The poll also found that 75% of white evangelicals approve of Trump’s performance.
Less than 20% of unaffiliated Americans and black Protestants support Trump.
The Friendly Atheist noted evangelicals support Trump even without evangelical Vice President Mike Pence:
There was a time when I thought white evangelicals supported Trump because Mike Pence was his running mate, and he’s one of them. I was wrong about that. It’s obvious now that Pence’s Christianity was never as powerful a draw as Trump’s open bigotry. If Pence was booted from the ticket, I suspect very little would change for Trump in terms of his support from those same Christians.
