What Kind of Evangelicals Are Backing Donald Trump?
"In this post-apocalyptic environment, it becomes increasingly clear why southern evangelicals would drop their requirements that a political leader who seeks their backing be one of them, ideologically or faithfully." These voters, Domenech argues, "have no illusions about [Trump's] unbelief. The difference is that while they believe Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio would be one more round of good soldiers for their cause, they think Donald Trump would be a tank."
That's assuming, of course, that Trump does not perform another ideological back flip. He's supported abortion and single-payer healthcare in the past, so what's to stop him from doing so again? Voters may see him as a tank, but he may end up being a Trojan horse.
