It's widely known that White American evangelicals make up a core part of President Trump's base, but most reporting doesn't go beyond the "81%" exit poll stat. Evangelicals of other races represent a large percentage of voters in the U.S.; surveys show that non-Trump factions would outnumber many classic Democratic voting blocs. Data experts, faith leaders, and academics will bring us beyond that 81% to understand how and why various faith communities vote the way they do and how Christians of color and religious minorities are responding to highly public debates over race, national identity and the country's history of inequity.
