How Did the Evangelical Votes Turnout for the 2020 Election?

The evangelical turnout in the 2020 presidential election was phenomenal for President Donald J. Trump.

In 2016, Trump received 81 percent of the evangelical vote. There were 31 million votes for him by this group that year.

How does 2020 compare?

President Trump received 43 million votes, the largest share of this electorate ever recorded.
11.9 million more than 2016.

Trump supporters march in prayer for America on Election night in Maricopa County (Phoenix), AZ.

Even with the harvested votes, Joe Biden looks to have received even fewer evangelical votes than Hillary Clinton and to have lost Catholics 2 to 1.

When you look at Evangelicals, Trump’s accomplishments and certain Trump policies (Pro-life and Freedom of Religion, for instance), Republicans received the largest minority vote since 1960. This includes a huge Latino support throughout the country (an ideological firewall against socialism).

As of this writing, Republicans look to have an 8 to 10 seat gain in the House, while the Senate held at least 100 seats in State houses
