99% of Republican white evangelical Protestants oppose impeaching and removing Trump, new poll finds

White evangelical Protestants have never held President Trump's possible moral shortcomings against him, supporting him despite his string of marriages, occasionally foul language and questionable familiarity with Biblical teaching. Although Mr. Trump has boasted about grabbing women in vulgar language, and  referred to Second Corinthians as "Two Corinthians"  in a pre-election forum,  81% of white evangelical Protestants  supported Mr. Trump in the 2016 election.

The president has counted white evangelical Protestant leaders like Robert Jeffress and Jerry Falwell Jr. as some of his strongest allies since taking office. While they may recoil at his abrasive language, white evangelical Protestants are largely pleased with Mr. Trump's role in nominating conservative judges to the federal bench. Although many faith leaders opposed Mr. Trump's decision to withdraw American troops from northern Syria — televangelist  Pat Robertson warned  that Mr. Trump was "in danger of losing the mandate of heaven" — a new poll suggests that white evangelical Protestants are sticking with the president through the impeachment inquiry.

According to a poll released this week by the  Public Religion Research Institute , a nonprofit nonpartisan organization, 99% of Republican white evangelical Protestants oppose  the impeachment  and removal of Mr. Trump from office. This is an even greater percentage than overall Republicans, 94% of which oppose the impeachment and removal of Mr. Trump. (Ninety-nine percent of Republicans who watch Fox News, a subsection that likely overlaps with white evangelical Protestants, also oppose impeachment and removal.)

The PRRI poll was conducted between August 22 and September 15.

Separately, an  NPR/Marist poll  published in late September found that 74% of white evangelical Protestants opposed the House opening an impeachment inquiry into Mr. Trump.

While the PRRI poll found that 77% of white evangelical Protestants approve of the job Mr. Trump is doing in office, only 54% of white mainline Protestants and 48% of white Catholics approve of his job performance. There are also divides along racial lines: 72% of Hispanic Catholics and 86% of black Protestants disapprove of Mr. Trump's job performance.

There is also widespread disagreement over whether Mr. Trump has encouraged white supremacist violence while in office. Seventy percent of white evangelical Protestants, 51% of white mainline Protestants, and 46% of white Catholics say that Mr. Trump has not had an impact on white supremacist groups, according to the PRRI poll. However, 78% of black Protestants say that Mr. Trump's decisions and behavior have encouraged white supremacist groups.

Still, Mr. Trump's support among white evangelical Protestants is not completely ironclad. An  NPR/Marist poll  from earlier in September found that 62% of white evangelical Protestants definitely plan to vote for Mr. Trump. And if he does hold onto their support, that demographic may not be enough to swing the election in his favor.

I wonder if it is even possible to make an unfair sweeping generalization about evangelical Trump supporters, since 99% of them think alike?

I proudly stand as part of them and openly support President Trump and stand in defiance of the House of Representatives Star chamber.

Of course they don't want him out.  He is their excuse for their own bad behavior.

Another poll, another day from a declining demographic.

Evangelicals?  The leadership drives Bentleys ( although some drive Lamborghinis ) and have private jets. 

The reach of Lucifer is long.  His shadow is longer.  He is powerless without their help.

So why do we capitulate to a group that is composed of about 30% or less of the total population? There are more scandals of televangelists and evangelicals ripping off their flock and parading around with mistresses, Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker one of the more high profile instances. Recently we find the son of Jimmy Graham with his pool boy scandal and sex scandal. Their entire premise is a holier than thou approach where they think their own small minority should rule over everything. It is absolutely ridiculous for the media to waste so much time on the smallest groups of voters when covering any issue.

Matthew 7:5...  "You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye."

Evangelicals are not hypocrites.  The term is a non-qualifier.  They walk in The Shadow of Lucifer.  The bible itself warns of them.  It is they who demanded Pilate crucify Him.
