Heading into the midterm elections earlier this month, President Donald Trump’s approval ratings continued to around 40 percent, but among white evangelical Christians, the president still enjoys an outpouring of support — and a full quarter of this demographic said there is nothing Trump could do that would jeopardize their approval.
According to a late-October survey by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI), 58 percent of Americans disapprove of Trump’s performance as president, which includes 42 percent of those who said they strongly disapprove.
Further, 46 percent of Americans said they not only disapprove but there is nothing Trump could do to change their minds. By comparison, 14 percent of Americans said they approve of the president, and there is nothing he could do to lose their support.
Among white evangelical Christians, that number jumped to 25 percent.
Similarly, 22 percent of white mainline Protestants said Trump could not lose their approval.
The number dropped to 19 percent for white Catholics and 12 percent for Hispanic Catholics.
Just six percent of black Protestants and four percent of religiously unaffiliated Americans say there is nothing Trump could do to lose their approval.
