I can show you a link indicating that evangelical support is down by a net of 13%.

And come election season he will have brought them all back by railing on the same things they hate (abortion and people of color) and promising to give them more of what they do want (guns and money).

I think the idea that his support has dropped with them is technically true, but misleading. It's like saying the Toronto Raptors are clearly the best team in the NBA because they just won the title. Sure, there's the fact that their support of him went from like 82 -> 69% over the course of two years. But at 69% it's still incredibly high. Trump's approval in March, per PEW, was:

White evangelical protestant 69%
White mainline protestant 48%
White catholic 44%
National Average 42.5%
Nonwhite catholic 26%
No religious affiliation 20%
Black protestant 12%

In Feb 2017 No religion was at 24%. So he's lost 1 in 6.
In Feb 2017 White evangelical was 78%. So he's lost 1 in 7.09
He's lost more non-religious by share than religious.

Also the word "white" is INCREDIBLY important in this equation. Black protestants pray to the same god as white protestants. I think it's important we keep in mind that it's not religious people ruining our country, it's white religious people.

Quote:
President Trump on Wednesday said he is "very happy" that some GOP senators from earlier in his term are no longer in the Senate, telling a group of supporters that those lawmakers have "gone on to greener pastures."

Trump went on a riff during a campaign-style speech to the Faith and Freedom Coalition in which he complained about Democrats blocking his desired immigration policies before acknowledging he was unable to pass his agenda when Republicans held both chambers of Congress.

"But we didn’t have enough votes because it was very close. We needed 60 votes, and we had 51 votes, and sometimes, you know, we had a little hard time with a couple of them, right?" Trump said, referring to the GOP Senate majority during the previous Congress.

"Fortunately, they’re gone now. They’ve gone on to greener pastures — or perhaps far less green pastures, but they’re gone," he said, without naming any senators. "I’m very happy they’re gone."

White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley later told reporters aboard Air Force One en route to Japan that the comment was directed at former Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.), who were outspoken critics of the president during the last Congress.

"There’s been some confusion over who the president was talking about this morning when he mentioned some senator, senators who’ve passed on to greener pastures, or not so greener pastures," Gidley said. "Some people in the media are speculating he was talking about Senator McCain. That’s absolutely ridiculous. He was talking specifically about Senators Corker and Flake."


Corker and Flake criticized Trump, but always voted with him. Trump never lost a thing because of Corker and Flake, not Obamacare repeal, not tax cuts, not Kavanaugh, not anything. He lost Obamacare repeal because of McCain, Collins and Murkowski. Trump blaming Corker and Flake for his inability to get things passed is the usual BS from him.

Maybe he heard it as “West Coast Liberalism”? Nah, he’s just dumb as a fence post. He learned nothing in school and doesn’t read books so he’s ignorant as hell.
