"Voters of faith turned out in record numbers and gave Donald Trump a margin of support that provided an indispensable key to his victory," said Tim Head, Faith & Freedom's executive director. "When some were writing the political obituary of the conservative religious vote, it showed its effectiveness yet again.
"Republicans cannot win without it," Head added, "and Democrats would be wise to find a way to appeal to these voters of faith."
Faith & Freedom's survey has a margin of error of 3.4 percent.
