Most churchgoing Christians who are Republican voted for other candidates in the primaries; Trump’s victory showed how little power religious and social conservatives have now…
…Trump is part of what it means to be in a post-Christian nation (and so, by the way, is Hillary, with the platform she’s running on). It is simply an illusion that traditional Christians are a silent majority in this country, and that if we only wake up, we can put matters aright.
A majority of self-described Evangelicals voted for Trump, but it seems that Christians who actually attend church voted for other Republican candidates.
It is not a bad thing for the various churches to stop being the Republican Party at Prayer. Republicans for their part are probably already seeing the writing on the wall and looking for ways to dump their retrograde church-going constituents the way the Democrats did years ago.
Future Presidential elections will all be between versions of Trump and Sanders.
An apelike Presidential candidate, some American version of the baboonish Hugo Chavez, who could capture the attention of both the Bernie Sanders morons and the Trumpkins would have no problem winning a general election and putting an end to the Constitutional order. Fortunately, that isn’t likely to happen soon because Sanders voters and Trump voters (despite their common economic frustrations, common preference for fantasy to reality, common resentments, and common desire for paternalistic, protectionist government) despise each other, and political preference is mostly a matter of taste and displaying one’s tribal markings.
