A recent poll of presidential approval ratings in America may indicate a growing chasm between evangelical Christians, especially white evangelicals, and the people they are trying to reach with the gospel. While only 51 per cent of all Protestants support President Trump’s presidency so far, a striking 78 per cent of white evangelical Protestants remain committed to Trump.

This high approval rating means that there has been virtually no decline in evangelical support for Trump, despite his executive orders targeting Muslims, health care plan that would strip benefits from many, destructive environmental policies, budget that would remove critical social safety nets, and threats to strike North Korea. Consequently, Trump’s approval ratings nationwide have hovered around 40 per cent for the month of April.post was originally published on this site
