According to a study done by the Public Religion Research Institute, a relatively large number of people believe that God played a role in the outcome of the election, coming in at about 28%.
The results showed that 45% of Republicans believed that God helped to get Donald Trump elected while only 18% of Democrats agree.
When looking at a specific religion, white evangelicals were more likely to believe that God played a role in the outcome. 57% said that God played a “major role” while 14% said he played a “minor role.” Adding the two together, this indicates that 71% of evangelicals believe God had some role in helping Trump get elected.
Catholics and religiously unaffiliated were the groups that were least likely to believe that God had any role in the outcome of Donald Trump. 21% of Catholics say that God had a “major role” and 7% of unaffiliated people say the same.
