    A national poll out Thursday shows Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump by double-digits. The poll also breaks down support by religion and finds that white Protestants are Trump’s most supportive demographic. The Public Religion Research Institute found that Clinton leads nationwide among registered voters with 48 percent, Trump follows with 35 percent and two percent backed Libertarian Gary Johnson. This poll, unlike others, broke down support for each candidate by registered voters’ religious preferences. Trump’s support is strongest among white evangelical Protestants. Sixty-two percent of them back Trump and 23 percent support Clinton. Trump also leads among white mainline...

    Jerry Falwell Jr. said in an op-ed yesterday, that Trump is Churchillian. I agree 1000% with Jerry, Obama and Clinton are the Neville Chamberlains of our time and Donald John Trump is the Churchill of the Century. Obama lives in his pathetic neo-Islamic Afro-Centrist world, Hillary lives in her corrupt pay to play world, and Donald J. LIVES the world and KNOWS the truth. And he speaks the truth to the American people, unlike Obama, Hillary and Karl Rove. By the way, for you libtards out there, "Churchillian" doesn't mean a lizard who goes to church.

    Jerry Falwell Jr. is president of Liberty University. In the 2008 and 2012 presidential elections, American voters were forced to choose between a liberal Democrat and weak establishment Republicans. Democrats won both times. In the 2010 and 2014 midterms, tired of the leftist agenda, voters sent an unmistakable message to Washington: Republicans took control of the Senate and filled more seats in the House than at any time since 1929. Still, nothing changed. In 2016, we have a clear choice. This moment is historic because Donald Trump is not another establishment Republican.

    Florida Senator Marco Rubio told pastors during a conference on Rediscovering God in Orlando that loving gay people, instead of judging them, is a fulfillment of the teachings of the Bible, rather than something that goes against it. "In order to love people you have to listen to them," Rubio said in his speech at the Rediscovering God in America Renewal Project, according to Breitbart News. "You have to understand their perspective, their hopes and their dreams and their fears and their pain." Rubio ran for this year's Republican presidential nomination. He dropped out in March after failing to win...

    Knowing what we know about Hillary Clinton and her plans for America, and the importance of the Supreme Court, we conservatives have a moral obligation to both oppose her and support Donald Trump. This is the sentiment I expressed on Sean Hannity’s television show Thursday that has sent some #NeverTrump conservatives into a tizzy. Ben Shapiro is the latest in a long line of mostly Acela-corridor Republicans who spend much of their days “see-I-told-you-so’ing” about Trump.

And he struck a notably softer tone than during his campaign for the Republican presidential nomination, during which he repeatedly...

    Pelosi: Clinton struggling with white men because of 'guns,' 'gays' and 'God' By Mike Lillis - 07/27/16 08:19 AM EDT House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) says Hillary Clinton can make inroads with white male voters by appealing to their economic needs. But the Democratic leader also suggested in an interview Tuesday that Clinton faces an uphill climb because those same voters — drawn in large numbers to Donald Trump and the Republicans — are more influenced by hot-button social issues than they are by economic arguments. "So many times, white — non-college-educated — white males have voted Republican. They...

    Nearly four-fifths of white evangelical voters plan to cast their ballots for Donald J. Trump, despite his multiple marriages, lack of piety and inconsistency on the issues they care about most, a new poll has found. Support for Mr. Trump among white evangelicals is even stronger than it was four years ago for Mitt Romney, the previous Republican candidate for president, according to the poll of religious voters, released on Tuesday by the Pew Research Center. White evangelicals make up about one-fifth of all registered voters and are a coveted bloc who, when energized, can turn out the vote through...

    Donald Trump has maintained and even increased his favorability numbers among white Protestant Republican voters in the past few weeks, a recent Gallup poll shows. The numbers stand in stark contrast to the latest ABC News-Washington Post poll showing his loss of support in the past few weeks among several other key voting blocs, including Hispanics and African-Americans. The Gallup poll found that Trump’s favorability among “highly religious” white Protestant Republicans increased to 66 percent this month from 57 percent in the window between February and the end of May. The 9-point gain is reflective of attitudes among evangelical Republicans,...

    Monday’s Supreme Court ruling tossing Texas abortion restrictions puts a massive spotlight on the new debate pressing evangelicals: Which is a worse sin, racism or abortion? For decades, abortion has been the mother of all deciding issues for evangelicals, who make up about a quarter of the U.S. population and are strongly opposed. But in the 2016 race, with Donald Trump’s unusually incendiary comments about race, culture and religion, this second issue is becoming increasingly sacred. This question of how to deal with Hillary Clinton’s robust support for abortion rights along with Trump’s challenging of the place of minorities is...

    "He's a baby Christian." If you’re a Christian who’s been reluctant to vote for Donald Trump because of his past - shall we say - moral shortcomings, a secondhand report of his possible salvation is certainly not a reason all by itself to change that position. And as we’ve discussed in the past, it’s entirely possible God could be using Trump regardless of his faith or lack thereof. But one thing any Christian should recognize is that a person’s past is cleansed once they come to Christ, so if Dr. James Dobson is accurately reporting what he says happened recently,...

    Contrary to those in the media and elsewhere who claimed he was “far more accepting” on LGBT issues than other GOP candidates, Donald Trump is proving that he very much will be a force against LGBT equality if elected president. And he’s doing it in a more insidious, under-the-radar way than any previous GOP presidential nominee. Though he rarely raises his positions against LGBT rights on the campaign trail, Trump is making pacts with anti-LGBT forces. Today, Trump spoke at the Road to the Majority summit in Washington, an event attended by Christian right activists and sponsored by the Faith...

    The Amish don’t read Donald Trump’s tweets and can’t watch his television appearances, and voting is practically against their religion. But that’s not stopping a group of Trump allies with ties to Ben Carson and Newt Gingrich from mounting a campaign to turn them out anyway. Amish PAC was started by an alum of a pro-Carson super PAC, an ex-Amish donor to that super PAC and an employee of Gingrich Productions. The group is planning to mount an old-fashioned, billboards-and-newspaper-ads effort this summer, designed to encourage Amish people in Pennsylvania and Ohio to turn out for Trump in November....

Several of the country’s top socially conservative leaders, from Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council to Penny Nance of Concerned Women for America, said Trump’s choice of running mate would be among the most important factors in deciding whether to activate their extensive grass-roots networks on the real estate billionaire’s behalf. “Who’s...

And 44 percent of Republican voters who regularly attend religious services are likely to back Cruz, while Trump has the backing of only 29 percent in this category.

    Robert Jeffress, pastor of the 12,000 member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, is rebuking talk radio host Glenn Beck for his recent criticism of evangelical Christians who live in the South and are not supporting Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 97% ’s campaign to secure the Republican Presidential nomination. “All throughout the South the Evangelicals are not listening to their God,” Beck said at a rally in Utah on Monday. “Beck’s wacko comment speaks for itself,” Jeffress tells Breitbart News. “However, by using the phrase ‘their God’ to refer to the God we evangelical Christians worship, Beck is finally admitting...

    Eagle Forum founder Phyllis Schlafly has been one of Donald Trump’s most vocal supporters, much to the dismay of her fellow Eagle Forum activists who have rallied behind Ted Cruz. However, Schlafly stood by her position in an interview with WorldNetDaily today, even mocking the Cruz campaign’s failure to win support from a plurality of evangelical Republican voters in many of the early primary states: “The amazing thing is, Cruz based his campaign on courting the evangelicals, and even the evangelicals voted for Trump!” “Trump has got the energy to punch the kingmakers in the nose and take the selection...

    The top feature at Friday's Drudge Report was a smear of Ted Cruz' Christian faith by a self-described "gay conservative libertarian" publisher in Florida. The misleading and exaggerated Drudge feature - accompanied by a series of equally misleading and distorted video clips - was written by "political operative" Jacob Engels of the East Orlando Post, which he owns. His Twitter page shows Engels is actively promoting Donald Trump. It also reveals Engels' admiration for close Trump confidante Roger Stone, mastermind of Trump's presidential campaign and head of the pro-Trump super PAC, The Committee to Restore America's Greatness. Engels appears to...

    Just Who Are 'Trump's Evangelicals'? Debates whether conservative Christians should support Donald Trump's presidential bid have revived a more long-term question: Who 'counts' as an evangelical, anyway?' By Molly Jackson, Staff MARCH 6, 2016 Donald Trump has not yet given voters a nuanced view of his understanding of Christian communion: The professed Presbyterian referred to the sacramental bread as "my little cracker" during a meeting with conservative Christian leaders last year; more recently, he tried to put money in an Iowa church's communion plate ahead of the state caucus. But if the unconventional GOP candidate has a tendency to overlook...

    The Washington Post ^ | March 1, 2016 | Phillip Rucker
    This story has been updated. It was one of Donald Trump’s first powerful endorsements: Jerry Falwell Jr., who testified for many evangelical Christians that despite leading a life of excess, the thrice-married, trash-talking mogul was indeed a God-fearing president-in-waiting. But Falwell’s plunge into presidential politics did not sit so well with intimates of his late father, Jerry Falwell Sr., nor with some at Liberty University, the Christian college in Virginia founded by the elder Falwell and now led by his son. Mark DeMoss, who for many years served as chief of staff to Falwell Sr. and considered the televangelist a...
