In 2016, White Evangelicals were Donald Trump’s most supportive base. It’s not surprising. Since the Reagan era, “Christian” and “republican” have been nearly synonymous.

Fast-forward to 2020. There are still the evangelical voters who are passionately loyal to the President in spite of his less-than-morally-upright behavior, language and attitude. That’s the base that Trump was appealing to when he said Joe Biden wants to hurt God and take away your guns — the base that thinks God and guns are somehow inextricable.
