Most White Americans who regularly attend worship services voted for Trump in 2020

Religion played an important role in the 2020 election: Republican candidate Donald Trump continued to garner strong support from White evangelical Protestants, while Black Protestants and the religiously unaffiliated backed the Democratic candidate and eventual winner, President Joe Biden.

But religious identity alone does not tell the whole story. Among White Americans, worship service attendance is highly correlated with presidential vote choice, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of 2020 validated voters. Overall, 59% of voters who frequently attend religious services cast their ballot for Trump, while 40% chose Biden. Among those who attend services a few times a year or less, the pattern was almost exactly reversed.
