Evangelicals are not black.....according to the news.

That's the only way to accurately suggest that Dump continues to enjoy support from the Evangelical community. It's another way the media white washes a group that is actually very diverse.
According to 538, 5 % of black evangelicals identify as republican. This stands in stark contrast with the fact that 49% of white evangelicals identify as republican. The Democratic Party continues to enjoy overwhelming support from the full diaspora of the black community. This includes 69% among black evangelicals. Interestingly, Hispanic evangelicals lean more independent.

According to the Pew Research Center, the contrast between white and black evangelicals is even more defined.

From The Economist:

The racial divide will take some healing. Of the 27% of American adults who describe themselves as evangelicals, 62% are white, 19% are black and 11% Hispanic, according to the Pew Research Centre. Since Mr Trumpís inauguration last year, Pew has found that three-quarters of white evangelicals say they lean towards the Republican Party. And three-quarters of those people said they thought Mr Trump was doing a good job. Among black evangelicals, 85% said they leaned towards the Democrats, and 86% of those said they disapproved of Mr Trumpís performance.

Let's not fall into the trap of forgetting what the cult of tRump is really about. It's not about faith. It's not about economic worry. It's not about the opioid crisis. It's not even about regulatory changes.
It is now and has always been about one thing...race.

1. Evanjellyrollers

So why did over 90% of white evangelicals vote for tRump? I've never met one that is even remotely progressive. They and the elderly are responsible for tRump. And the Russians, of course.

2. I don't know any white evangelicals.

I haven't had any interactions with them for over decade. The few I did know were just as progressive as me. There's a lot of research into that question, check the google machine. The purpose of my post is to let folks know that not all evangelicals support Dolt45. As a matter of fact, most black and brown evangelicals do not. Think of Rev. Barber and Rev. Curry.
