"If current trends hold steady, 2024 will be a watershed year the first American election in which white Christian voters do not constitute a majority of voters."
As for now, remaining fundamentalists are intensely loyal to the GOP, and vote in extremely high numbers while "nones" tend to have low political commitment and vote meagerly. Presumably, born-agains will give powerful support to Donald Trump in the 2020 election. But it seems likely, eventually, someday, that the GOP base will erode. Jones of the PRRI summed up:
"There will ultimately be a breaking point to just how overrepresented this group can remain as the demographics continue to shift."
I can't wait for the dying albatross around Republican necks to take its toll.
