While the approval rating of President Donald Trump has slipped with white evangelical Protestants, a majority say they would still vote for Trump, according to a new poll.

A Pew Research Center poll released Wednesday found that 72% of white evangelical Protestants think Trump is doing a good job, which is a 6-point drop from an April survey.

Other poll results show:

  • 82% of white evangelical Protestants say they would vote for Trump if the election were held today.
  • 69% of white evangelical Protestants say Trump has been either good or great in his role as president.
  • 49% of white evangelical Protestants say Joe Biden would make a terrible president.

Trump also has strong support from white Protestants who do not identify as evangelical as well as white Catholics. About 6 in 10 voters from those religions say they would reelect Trump, according to poll results. 

Black Protestants prefer Biden for president with 88% saying they would vote for him in November. Eight in 10 Black Protestants say Trump has been a poor or terrible president.

The poll surveyed 4,708 adults between June 16-22. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 1.8 percentage points.
