Mostly White Evangelicals Grew During Trump Regime

The charts above are from the Pew Research Center. They compare the religious groups in 2016 to those after the 2020 election. 

Note that protestants and catholics remained constant -- with protestants at 45% and catholics at 18%. The non-religious grew slightly -- from 29% to 30%.

But the protestant groups were different. The born-again evangelicals actually grew from 25% to 29%, while those not claiming to be born-again dropped from 20% to 17%.

As the second chart shows, most of the growth for born-again evangelicals came from white Trump supporters.
