President of Liberty University Jerry Falwell Jr. thinks Evangelical Christian support for President Donald Trump will be greater in 2020 than it was in 2016.
Falwell shared his opinion during a Tuesday interview with SiriusXM’s "Breitbart News Tonight."
He told host Matt Boyle that “there’s no question” that Evangelical support for Trump “has strengthened.”
“I have board members who travel. I have one board member who lost his legs in Vietnam. He travels from military base to military base, from church to church. He says everywhere he goes [he meets] people who were hesitant to vote for Trump in 2016, [but] Evangelicals are 100% behind him, now,” Falwell said. “I have pastors on my board to tell me the same thing. They can see the support. They can feel it.”
Falwell commented on a Democracy Institute/Sunday Express poll released Tuesday that found 90% of Evangelical Christians support Trump’s reelection. He said the results don’t surprise him.
“It doesn’t surprise me a bit,” he said of the poll results. “It wouldn’t surprise me if it was higher than 90%.”
He said “every Evangelical I’ve run into at every major event has [told me], ‘We were hesitant. We thought you were a little nuts for supporting [Trump] in 2016, but we are 100% behind him, now.’”
Falwell pointed out how important Supreme Court nominations are to Evangelical Christians. The Supreme Court is “one place the president can make a difference on social issues,” he said.
