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.

Another poll, another day from a declining demographic.

From one of your own favorite sources;  The decline of Protestantism across the board...

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.

There is a schism among that group that grows wider each day Trump keeps raping the ideals of the Republic.

He's unbeatable...

I wouldn't bet the farm on it.... OH WAIT! Many farmers did bet the farm on Trump and lost! 

...and unimpeachable...

Yeah I would have said that too before the last two weeks of testimony in the House. Now it's a 50-50 toss up. As soon as it's not politically prudent to support Trump anymore those Rep Senators will start to change their tune.

Those same polls served the left so well last time around.

Hillary in a landslide- what a joke.

Polls don't mean shit when it comes to people voting in their own self interest. 

The economy is good (despite the left predicting (read praying for) a recession ever since Trump too office), unemployment is very low, and despite the Democrats Chicken Hawk fears there are no new wars. Trump even ended our presence in Syria; much to the newly minted Democrat Chicken Hawks and Neocons contempt.  Next is Afghanistan if Trump can withstand the backlash of Congress shitting all over themselves.

The only chance the Democrats have is to impeach Trump in the House; and pray the Republicans in the Senate commit political suicide by going along with it. Given their shit show secret impeachment inquiry in the House, don't hold your breath. The Republicans will follow their constituents. Unless the economy tanks in the next year, their constituents are saying fuck the Dems.

The aggregate of polls were with the +- 4 points. In the end a few polls were outside that at 6 points, but the trend for Clinton in the run up to the election was nose diving. I gave warning at the time things looked bad. I was correct then. 

The economy is good (despite the left predicting (read praying for) a recession ever since Trump too office),

Not for the farmers, coal workers and manufacturing labor that Trump made promises to. Some will still vote for him, but he's losing voters in WI, MI and PA.

Trump even ended our presence in Syria;

Which has pissed off the Old School Republicans. That cost him votes.

The only chance the Democrats have is to impeach Trump in the House;

That's a near certainty. Which that and $2.00 will get you a cup of coffee. It means little in the large scheme of things. Don't think every Congress Critter isn't watching these polls either.

...and pray the Republicans in the Senate commit political suicide by going along with it.

I freely admit things can change, but at present it's not looking good for Trump.

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.
