Evangelicals and Catholics Become Increasingly Divided Politically

Oct 13, 2016

Religious voters have become increasingly divided this election season, with a survey this Tuesday by the Public Religion Research Institute showing White Catholics favoring Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump 46 to 42 percent. Conversely, Evangelicals have stayed steady in their support of Trump: in that same survey there was no significant change in White Evangelical Protestants support for Trump, with 65 percent of them still supporting the Republican nominee.

On this River to River segment, Clay Masters talks with political analyst Kedron Bardwell of Simpson College and two Iowa voters, an Evangelical and a Catholic voter, about what’s influencing them this election.
