Many white evangelicals believe their quality of life will improve now that the presidential election is over, according to the results of a new survey.

A poll conducted by The Atlantic and the Public Religion Institute discovered that 39 percent of the people in this group think life in their communities will get better moving forward. A month before the election, 24 percent of white evangelists told The Atlantic their lives have improved since their childhood.

The most recent result means evangelicals are feeling bullish on President-elect Donald Trump and the administration he's putting together ahead of his January 20 inauguration.

Trump struggled to gain support among evangelicals during his campaign. But when Trump became the Republican party's presidential nominee, many evangelists saw no better option than to vote for him — even though there were questions about whether they truly trusted the billionaire real estate mogul.

The Atlantic survey found that white evangelicals recognize social problems like drugs and hunger, and 64 percent think "society as a whole has become too soft and feminine."

Trump discussed those topics during his campaign and, for example, has shown signs he intends to crack down on illegal drugs.

A Pew Research Center analysis after the Nov. 8 election found that 81 percent of white evangelicals voted for Trump.
