Evangelicals and Conservative Catholics, Who Have Voted Together for Decades, Are Splitting Apart

posted on September 8, 2016

Trump is losing Catholic voters by 23 points while retaining strong support from white evangelicals. Rozell writes, “This contrast doesn’t just matter for Trump’s candidacy. It reveals a startling political splintering of conservative Catholics and evangelicals, who have tracked side by side for decades.”
