Almost All White Working-Class Evangelicals Think ‘Christian Values’ Are ‘Under Attack’

According to a new CNN/Kaiser Family Foundation poll, most white, working class evangelical voters don’t have a very favorable view of America, and most think their values are under attack. Six-in-10 said that America’s best days are behind it, and somewhat a shocking 90% said that “Christian values” are under attack. By comparison, just 41% of Americans with no religious preference believe that Christian values in the U.S. are somehow under attack.

Most of the same group, also are concerned about Muslim immigration, with 75% believing immigration from Muslims countries increases the risk of terrorism.

The poll also showed a racial divide among evangelical voters. From CNN, “While black evangelicals are solidly against the GOP nominee, among white working-class evangelicals, about three in four—76%—say they’d consider voting for Trump.”
