Current polling only polls small percentages of conservatives and large portions of liberals. But if polls make you sleep better at night, then keep paying attention to them.

Actually, most Christians that I know don't support Trump or his policies. They think that Mike Pence isn't very Christianly.
It's the Evangelicals who support Trump, and these Evangelicals don't support Jesus' teachings or Christlike behavior, unless you're talking about the Christ of the Book of Revelations. Then, they're all over it.
Make no mistake about it, words matter. And, Mr. Trump’s words are dangerous.
These words are more than a “dog-whistle.” When such violent dehumanizing words come from the President of the United States, they are a clarion call, and give cover, to white supremacists who consider people of color a sub-human “infestation” in America. They serve as a call to action from those people to keep America great by ridding it of such infestation. Violent words lead to violent actions.
As leaders of faith who believe in the sacredness of every single human being, the time for silence is over. We must boldly stand witness against the bigotry, hatred, intolerance, and xenophobia that is hurled at us, especially when it comes from the highest offices of this nation. We must say that this will not be tolerated. To stay silent in the face of such rhetoric is for us to tacitly condone the violence of these words. We are compelled to take every opportunity to oppose the indecency and dehumanization that is racism, whether it comes to us through words or actions.
All the Christians I know are voting Trump because he is not a race baiting,
he refuses to engage in identity politics
