White Evangelicals and the 2016 Presidential Election

Senior Religion major Jacob Dye is hard at work on his senior honors thesis, tentatively titled “Has the Donald ‘Trumped’ Jesus? White Evangelical Christians and the 2016 Presidential Election.” He is exploring data related to the overwhelming support from white Evangelicals for President Trump and is discussing that support in light of theological defenses of it from evangelical leaders as well as critiques of that support from other Christian voices. Jacob plans to attend Duke University Divinity School next year to pursue a M.Div. degree.
