In September of 2017, a study of faith in America was released. Though this study is now two years old, it is increasingly relevant as more recent (though less rigorous) studies show that the trends are deepening. In any case, the study shows that white Christians are no longer a majority of people in the United States. However, white Christians make up 73% of the Republican party. Believe it or not, white Christians make up a smaller percentage of the Republican party today than 10 years ago. Furthermore, fewer than 33% of the Democratic party consists of white Christians (down from 50% 10 years ago). This is a drastic change. In the late 1970s, when Jimmy Carter was president, white Christians accounted for 80% of the U.S. population.
