Majority of Republicans Back Christian Nationalism

According to a recent survey conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) and the Brookings Institute, over half of Republicans either agree with or sympathize with Christian nationalism.

The results of the survey show that 29% of Americans overall were ranked as adherents or sympathizers of Christian nationalism, while 68% were ranked as skeptics or rejecters.

Among Republicans, a total of 54% were adherents or sympathizers, with 44% being skeptics or rejecters.

The survey, carried out among roughly 6,000 American adults from all 50 states, asked respondents five questions to determine their stance on Christian nationalism, with two questions being whether “The U.S. government should declare America a Christian nation” and if “Being Christian is an important part of being truly American.”

White Evangelical Protestants had the highest percentage of those who were either adherents or sympathizers, with 64%, while 33% were skeptics or rejecters.

Among Hispanic Protestants, 43% were adherents or sympathizers, while 55% were skeptics or rejecters.

Black Protestants had 38% of respondents who supported Christian nationalism, while 58% were skeptics or rejecters.

The survey was conducted online from November 21 to December 14, 2022. The results have a margin of error of +/- 1.6%.
