(TheRedWire.com) – A recent poll conducted by HarrisX on behalf of Deseret News found that a larger percentage of Republicans view former President Donald Trump as a person of faith than those who view Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) or former Vice President Mike Pence as people of faith, despite the latter two being a lot more vocal about their religious views.
Trump had the top position among Republicans, with 53 percent of voters considering him a person of faith. On the other hand, Evangelical Christian Pence had 52 percent of voters view him in the same way. However, what separates the two is that Pence frequently makes religious references, while Trump generally does not refer to his personal faith.
If one looks closely at Trump’s personal history, several issues could be troubling to conservative Christians. For starters, Trump has been divorced twice and indicted in New York for making a hush payment to former adult film star Stormy Daniels, with whom he allegedly had an affair.
Despite this, Trump continues to have the support of social conservatives, and the new poll has shown how the majority of voters view him. Trump was also instrumental in overturning Roe v. Wade as he appointed three conservative justices to the Supreme Court during his one term in office.
During the Faith & Freedom Gala in June, Trump argued that he was the U.S. President who had fought for Christians the most. He added that he would continue to fight until he won back the White House.
Among Democrats, President Biden is considered a “person of faith,” with 63 percent of voters stating that this was how they viewed him. Biden has often talked about his Catholic faith.
