White evangelical support for President Trump has reached a record high despite mounting scandals involving alleged extramarital affairs with a porn star and a former Playboy model, according to a new poll by the Public Religion Research Institute.
Seventy-five percent of white evangelical respondents in the poll said they view Trump favorably, while just 22 percent said they view him unfavorably.
Trump’s favorability among the general population stood at just 42 percent.
The president’s favorability with white evangelicals has steadily risen over time and has never fallen below 65 percent since his inauguration, according to PRRI.
His support among white evangelicals stood at 74 percent in February 2017.
