According to Pew Research Center’s Religious Landscape survey, white Christians are no longer a majority in the U.S. Pew reports that white Christians now make up 46 percent of the American population, down from 55 percent in 2007. The number of white Christians among Republicans, however, has remained at a steady 69 percent, while 31 percent lean Democrat. Interestingly, the number of nonwhite Christians that lean Democrat is nearly the same as white Christians: 32 percent. The number of nonwhite Christians that vote Republican, however, is significantly lower, at only 13 percent. The study also showed a 50 percent increase in the gap of Christian identification among Democrats and Republicans.
