Those who say religion has nothing to do with politics do not know what religion is. – Mahatma Gandhi
Gallup polling released a report this past week that told us that President Donald Trump’s approval rating — early in his presidency — is significantly higher among highly religious Americans than among those who are not religious.
Trump had a 51% approval rating from those who considered themselves “highly religious” and 44% approval rating from those who are “moderately” religious. His approval rating from those “not religious” was 32%.
Republicans usually have a higher rating from those who consider themselves religious than those who are not religious, so this report was not that shocking.
Trump’s overall approval rating on Friday from a three-day rolling average was 41%.

Religion does play a big part in our politics – and in my opinion, that is good and bad.
When I do good, I feel good. When I do bad, I feel bad. That’s my religion. – Abraham Lincoln
