Will Conservative Christians Help Re-elect Trump?
In a recent interview with The New York Times, PRRI CEO Robert P. Jones explained that is likely President Trump will win the vast majority of white evangelical voters. “There’s no world in which Biden is going to get a quarter of white evangelical votes,” Jones says. “They look just so locked in.” Jones notes that as many as 85% of white evangelical Protestants casting ballots could do so for Trump. According to Elizabeth Dias, some who might not vote for Trump have likely not expressed so publicly. “Voices of dissent, when they exist, are often uncomfortable saying publicly that they will not vote for Mr. Trump, because of how contentious the issue is in their families or churches,” she writes.

Brownstein: Democrats Could Win, But Won’t Neutralize Republicans
In a new piece for The Atlantic, Ronald Brownstein looks at what could happen if former Vice President Joe Biden is elected president. Though a Biden victory would indicate a desire for change, not all will have voted for it. “That doesn’t mean the voters who embody the nation’s future are guaranteed a lasting victory over those who feel threatened by it,” Brownstein writes. Brownstein cites PRRI data in his analysis on how Biden could win. “A recent poll by [PRRI] shows Biden leading with Catholics and running about even among Protestants. Both then and now, Trump faces rejection from about 70 percent of the growing number of secular adults who don’t identify with any religious tradition.”
