Trump approval among Evangelicals dips slightly

I think a lot of evangelicals have never been completely comfortable with President Trump’s behavior, and his tweeting, even as they see him as the best bet to safeguard the country.

But the abrasiveness, the crudeness, and the failure to show a more coordinated response to the coronavirus may be grating on them.

I think a lot of evangelicals, whatever they are thinking now, will come back to Trump once they think through the alternative closer to Election Day. The Left will make sure religious conservatives can never be comfortable pulling the lever for Joe Biden, who has shown little spine for standing up to any of the insanity in his Party.

And John Robertson is doing his part too, if you know what I mean.

According to the Washington Examiner:

Support for President Trump among white evangelicals, one of his key constituencies, slipped in June, a poll taken by the Pew Research Center found.

Trump’s approval rating with the demographic rests at 72%, down 6 percentage points from where a similar poll found it in April, versus a 5-point drop that occurred among the population in general. The share of evangelicals who say they “strongly approve” of the job he’s doing, specifically in the areas of the coronavirus pandemic and the protests following the death of George Floyd, is also down, from 67% to 59%.

While support for the president among evangelicals remains high, political analysts have said that to win in November, Trump needs to increase his support among them. According to the poll, 82% of evangelicals say that if the election were held today, they would vote for Trump, chiefly because they feel they cannot vote for former Vice President Joe Biden.

  1. God has always used “imperfect” men (& women) to further his plan, President Trump could be included in those plans. Consider what the very radical Democrat/Leftist/Progressives represent: Abortion, sexual deviancy, rampant crime, lawless cities, selective prosecution of conservatives, etc….They have the schools, media, Hollyweird, BLM, Antifa, and some very powerful people who lurk in the shadows as they work daily against us. Now is not the time for Christians to nitpick Trump.

    1. I agree. Moses, David, Peter and Paul and on and on…only the Christ was perfect! We’re mainline Christians, Presbyterians, but identify as evangelical. How can we not support Trump? Didn’t God call Moses, David, Peter.and Paul for His use?

      1. He certainly did, just like Saul and David. Only Jesus Christ is perfect,and HE is the only one we should get down on our knees for.

  2. Given the choice between potty-mouthed tweets and neo-Stalinist persecution*, I think the Church at large knows exactly where things stand.

    And if Trump leaves Twitter for some other platform, I suspect the media would stop reporting on his posts anyway, so as not to promote the new site.

    As things stand right now, @jack gets way too much traffic from his most hated content provider, and without the agitprop media driving said traffic, Twitter would collapse in under a week.

    Just look what happened to Tumblr when they banned porn. That’s coming for the blue check mafia dons, the minute Trump defects.

    Anyway…at this point, in this feverish political climate, when no one can freely speak their mind without fear, all the polls, every last one of them, are shit, as far as I’m concerned.

    *Yes, that’s an exaggeration. At least, I think it is.
