4 myths about white evangelical voters

There are four common myths today about trends among white evangelicals that aren’t backed up by data, a Pew pollster has detailed.

Alan Cooperman, the director of religion research at the Pew Research Center, spoke earlier this month with journalists at the Faith Angle Forum held in Miami Beach, Florida, hosted by the Washington, D.C.-based think tank Ethics & Public Policy Center.

Speaking during a panel discussion on “America’s Religious Vote: Midterms and New Trends,” Cooperman outlined what he says are “straw men” arguments, or “myths,” that he hears being asserted in political discussions today.

Four of those myths involve some common misconceptions about white evangelical voters.

Myth 1: Evangelicals are turning liberal or turning against Trump
