Pew Research Study Finds, Most White Conservative Christians Believe They Will Gain Influence Under Trump!
Reader, word on the streets is that "White Conservative Christians" will gain influence under President-elect Donald Trump's term, more than half of respondents polled in a Pew Research study believe. Conversely, Hispanics, the poor, and gays, and lesbians will lose influence under Trump, a majority of those polled told Pew. Nearly half of respondents said African Americans and women are poised to lose. I'm hoping and praying that this racist President-elect will be President for ALL PEOPLE and blow this Pew poll out of the water.
Graphic from Pew Research Center "The public's assessments of the groups that will gain and lose influence in Trump's presidency are sharply different than before Barack Obama took office eight years ago," Pew said in its findings released Jan. 18. "In many cases, they mirror views of expected 'winners' and 'losers' under George W. Bush before he took office in January 2001." In the survey conducted Jan. 4-9 among 1,502 adults, both Democrats and Republicans viewed Trump's presidency as a win for conservative Christians, with 55 percent of Democrats and 52 percent of Republicans agreeing on the point. Among Republicans and Republican-leaning adults polled, only 10 percent predicted conservative Christians will lose influence, while 34 percent said they expect things to remain the same for the demographic group. Similarly among Democrats and Democrat-leaning adults polled, 17 percent said conservative Christians will lose influence; 25 percent said the demographic's circumstances won't change.
