dc.description.abstractIn 2016, eighty-one percent of white evangelical voters voted for Donald Trump—the demographics’ highest showing of support for any presidential candidate in over two decades. Using both existing and original research, this thesis attempts to create awareness for the historical context behind white evangelical support for Donald Trump. Topics covered include the relationships between high-profile evangelicals and presidents such as Nixon and Reagan, as well as the role of televangelists in the 2016 election. After considering the development of partisanship within the evangelical community, the thesis concludes by assessing the practical options available to evangelical voters in upcoming elections.en_US
