The Pew Trust’s 2014 study of Evangelicals notes that roughly 25 percent of adults in the United States identify with evangelical Protestantism, the largest Christian following in the country. Three-quarters are white, though the share of non-whites who identify as evangelical is growing. On average, evangelical Protestants have somewhat lower levels of education compared to the US public overall; half reside in the South — though the South is home to 37 percent of the population. Pew shares that since 2016, evangelicals make up an increasingly Republican group — one that consistently supports the current administration and its policies. This last fact is not lost on the broader population, who regularly question how such deeply faithful citizens support a president whose behaviors and values don’t exactly match up to traditional Christian mores. What’s up with evangelicals?
