Majority of white evangelical Protestants in US believe Trump serves their interests

Almost two-thirds of white evangelical Protestants in the US believe “their side” is winning politically under the Trump administration, according to a new survey.

The proportion has increased steadily during Trump’s presidency. In May 2016, six months before he was elected, 23% of white evangelical Protestants said their side was winning politically, rising to 36% two years ago, and 63% last month.

The survey, published by the Pew Research Center on Thursday, found that a big majority of white evangelical Protestants in the US – a key part of Trump’s electoral base – believed the president was good for their interests, but they had more mixed views on his personal attributes.

More than eight in 10 said the Trump administration “fights for what I believe in” either very or fairly well. But markedly fewer – 61% – said the phrase “morally upstanding” described the president very or fairly well.

“Even among this strongly supportive constituency, most do not view Trump as a very religious, honest or morally upstanding person,” said the report.

2. Ask them again 3 months from now when they

are either sick or taking care of sick family while they have $0 in the bank and their job is gone. They are going to infect others by choosing to remain ignorant. They are part of the problem, not the solution.

3. I can tell you what they'll say.

"It's not Trump's fault! And anyway, it would be much worse if Hillary was president!"
