A majority of voters who identify as evangelical support the reelection of President Donald Trump but this support remains skewed along ethnic and party lines, a new poll from Lifeway Research shows.
The online poll of 1,200 Americans conducted Sept. 9-23, with a plus or minus 3.2% margin of error, shows that among likely evangelical voters, 61% overall plan to vote for Trump while 29% are backing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Some 8% were undecided while about 2% supported other candidates.
Breaking down evangelical voters by race, the poll shows that most of Trump’s support from the group comes from white evangelicals. He leads Biden 73% to 18% among this group. When it comes to African American evangelicals, however, President Trump trails Biden 69% to 19%. Among other ethnicities, Trump holds a 58% to 32% lead among this group.
