(Worthy News) - A new poll from the Public Religion Research Institute has revealed that the approval numbers amongst Evangelicals in the United States have never been better.
“White evangelical support for President Trump is at an all-time high, with 75 percent holding a favorable view of the president and just 22 percent holding an unfavorable view. This level of support is far above support in the general population, where Trump’s favorability is at 42 percent,” writes analyst Robert P. Jones, who says that the president-to-be’s approval never got above 50 percent in early 2016, but jumped to 61 percent by autumn, and to 68 percent upon Mr. Trump’s inauguration.
“Trump’s support among white evangelicals at this stage of his presidency is strikingly solid. While there are modest differences by gender, Trump’s favorability among white evangelical women is still a robust 71 percent, compared to 81 percent among white evangelical men. And Trump’s favorability is still a strong 68 percent among college-educated white evangelicals, compared to 78 percent among those without a college degree,” Mr. Jones says. “Looking ahead to the 2020 election, Trump’s support among white evangelicals is also strong. White evangelical Protestants who identify with or lean toward the Republican Party say they would prefer Donald Trump, rather than another candidate, to be the GOP nominee for president in 2020 (69 percent vs. 23 percent).” [ Source: Washington Times (Read More...) ]
