President Donald Trump's support among white evangelicals has remained at a steady high since taking office in January 2017, according to polls.

The latest NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll, released Monday, found that 73 percent of white evangelical Christians approve of the job Trump is doing as president, while only 23 disapprove. Four percent indicated they were unsure.

Trump's approval ratings among white evangelical Christians slipped at the start of the year to 66 percent, according to a January poll conducted by the same researchers, amid a partial government shutdown over a wall the president vowed to build along the southern U.S.-Mexico border during his 2016 presidential campaign. During that period, 23 percent of white evangelical Christians disapproved of the job Trump was doing as president, while 11 percent were unsure.

Trump's current approval rating among white evangelicals is roughly the same as his figures from last December, when 73 percent approved of his job as president. A smaller portion — 17 percent — disapproved, and nine percent were unsure.

White evangelical support for Trump reached an all-time high last April, when a PRRI survey found that 75 percent of those in the category held a favorable view of the president, while just 22 percent held an unfavorable view of him.
