Evangelical Christian support for President Donald Trump will be greater in 2020s presidential election than in 2016, predicted Jerry Falwell Jr., president of Liberty University, sharing his comments on Tuesdays edition of SiriusXMs Breitbart News Tonight with host Matt Boyle.
Ninety percent of Evangelical Christians support Trumps reelection, according to a recent Democracy Institute/Sunday Express poll. Boyle invited Falwells remarks on the polls findings.
Falwell replied, Theres no question about it. The Evangelical support [for Trump] has strengthened. I have board members who travel. I have one board member who lost his legs in Vietnam. He travels from military base to military base, from church to church. He says everywhere he goes [he meets] people who were hesitant to vote for Trump in 2016, [but] Evangelicals are 100 percent behind him, now.

Falwell shared, Every Evangelical Ive run into at every major event has [told me], We were hesitant. We thought you were a little nuts for supporting [Trump] in 2016, but we are 100 percent behind him, now. It doesnt surprise me a bit. It wouldnt surprise me if it was higher than 90 percent.
Falwell highlighted the importance of Supreme Court nominations to Evangelical Christians. The Supreme Court is one place the president can make a difference on social issues, he said.
This issue of judges could help win the election again.
It’s not only Supreme Court justices, but hundreds of judges appointed to the lower federal courts, which have helped make the lower courts more conservative.
I know Justice Gorsuch is too liberal for some here, but, the alternative if Hillary had won that election, would have been two radical justices, instead of Gorsuch and Kavanaugh.
This is good news but none of this will mean much if the integrity of the vote is not assured.
Christians know an absolute injust hit job on a good man when they see it. So do honest liberals.
A democrat Christian is an oxymoron.
I said “honest liberal”, not “democrat Christians”. I know “honest liberal” fits the description of oxymoron too, but remember, today’s conservatives are what used to be called classical liberals. Some CL’s do still exist, although they are few and far between. They’re largely atheistic but they still believe in the constitution and the bill of rights. The left, “progressives” stole the term liberals for a while and are now back to calling themselves progressives because they never were really liberal at all.
Whoops, this got posted to the wrong thread, I was trying to reply to another thread and it got mixed up..
He says everywhere he goes [he meets] people who were hesitant to vote for Trump in 2016, [but] Evangelicals are 100 percent behind him, now.
Thats why you should never believe polls.
100 percent support is an undeniable statistic and cannot be overcome by Biden.
I agree (in the general sense, I saw the reply to you)
There are no more honest liberals like Hubert Humphrey, Scoop Jackson, or Daniel Patrick Moynihan.
They’ve all been replaced with what one Canadian conservative calls “Intersectional Vengeance Warriors”.
I just scored some 5.56mm today. How ‘bout choo?
I realize you didn’t say democrat Christians. . .IMHO those who are “lifelong” democrats have sold their souls to the party. I am sure their great great grandfathers and grandmothers would understand given these chaotic times. That being said, being a Republican doesn’t make a person a Christian either. . .but at least the platform does not blaspheme God, yet.
