Support for president Trump remains high among white American evangelicals as 72% approve of the way the president is handling the job. The figure has dropped from the 78% mark in April.
The survey was conducted by Pew Research in June 2020.
The survey details reveal a stark religious-racial divide for president job approval ratings: White evangelicals at 72% compared to Black Protestants at 12%.
If white evangelicals control the 2020 election, the president would win--82% of registered white evangelical voters will vote (or lean toward voting) for the president. Only 17% support Joe Biden.
It is not just white evangelicals who support the president. A slim majority of nonevangelical white Protestants (56%) and Catholics (54%) also give a thumbs up job approval. Biden isn't doing well among these groups.
