As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NYTimes.com:
For years Republicans have enjoyed the support of a powerful constituency: conservative evangelical Christians, whose passion on issues like opposition to abortion and support for Israel has aligned them with the party’s agenda. It has been an almost impenetrable voting bloc in recent years, and growing stronger, with more than 80 percent of white evangelical voters supporting President Trump in 2016.
Democrats have largely stood on the sidelines as Republicans forged this alliance. But now a group is moving more aggressively to bring evangelical voters and the Democratic Party together as the midterm elections approach.
The article goes on to state the following:
In the weeks leading up to Election Day, a group of progressive Christians — largely Democrats who are also evangelicals — are organizing small rallies in some 20 battleground House districts across the country. Their goal is to urge Christians to vote for Democrats and counter Trump administration policies that oppose their religious beliefs — especially on immigration, health care and poverty.
The group, Vote Common Good, hopes that shifting even a small percentage of evangelical voters will make a difference at the polls.
We don’t need a Religious Left to counter the Religious Right. If Christians who care about the common good vote w/ all our neighbors for a government that works for everyone, we can reconstruct democracy. #VoteCommonGood #PoorPeoplesCampaign https://t.co/asR9jpEQCz
