ANALYSIS: 2018 Midterm Exit Polls show Evangelicals continue to support President Trump, Republicans

According to the 2018 Midterm exit poll data, it looks like Evangelicals did their duty and voted for conservative, Republican candidates over their pro-abortion, anti-religious liberty opponents. This matters because of the attempt by evangelical leaders to destroy Christian support for the GOP. Since 2016, evangelical leaders have thrown fits and name called evangelical voters over continued support for the Republican Party.

For many of these leaders, saving the lives of unborn babies was less important than fighting racism or helping immigrants. These leaders ranging from the ERLC in the Southern Baptist Convention to many scholars in the PCA to nondenominational professors at Wheaton College have uniformly worked to weaken the bond of Christian evangelicals with the GOP.
