REPORT: Christians Favor Trump

( – In robust evidence of how much former President Donald Trump’s values align with Christianity, a new public opinion poll has discovered that the majority of American Christians favor him to win the 2024 election over incumbent Joe Biden.

According to a study conducted by Pew Research, if the 2024 presidential election were held today, a majority of white Christian voters would choose Donald Trump over Joe Biden.

At the same time, this research underscores the significant religious divide characterizing Americans’ preferences for presidential candidates, NewsNationNow points out in a report.

The study reveals that more than half of white Christians regard Donald Trump as a “great” or “good” president.

They believe that he did not engage in illegal activities to overturn the results of the 2020 election.

“More than half of white Christians said Trump was a ‘great’ or ‘good’ president who, in their opinion, did not break the law to try to overturn the 2020 election,” the study suggests.

Trump garners substantial support from several demographics within the white Christian community.

Specifically, he is favored by 81% of white evangelical Protestant voters, 61% of white Catholics, and 57% of white Protestants who do not identify as evangelical.

In contrast, Biden is the preferred candidate among Black Protestants and individuals who identify as atheists, agnostics, or subscribe to “nothing in particular” in terms of religious affiliation.

A significant portion of these voters also perceive Trump negatively, labeling him as a “terrible” president who did indeed violate the law during the 2020 election.

“Biden’s support includes 87% of atheist voters, 82% of agnostics, and 57% of with no religious particular religious beliefs,” the study states.

These voting preferences reflect the broader partisan orientations associated with different religious groups in the United States.

White Christians typically lean towards the Republican Party, whereas Black Protestants and religiously unaffiliated individuals, often referred to as the “nones,” are more likely to support the Democratic Party.

The survey, however, did not feature a sufficient number of participants from other religious backgrounds to provide distinct statistical breakdowns for these groups, the report notes.
