Trump Eyes New VP to Bolster Evangelical Support and Policy Goals

Former President Trump is seeking a new vice president, and many believe his choice will greatly influence his policies and energize many voters. While evangelicals have been a crucial voting bloc for Trump in the past, recent reports show that many evangelicals are already firmly dedicated to voting for him again, regardless of his vice presidential pick.

In 2016, Trump sought to win over evangelicals by selecting Mike Pence, a devoutly religious and anti-abortion advocate, as his running mate. This move helped sway some evangelical voters who may have been hesitant to support Trump due to his previous liberal stance on abortion. However, interviews conducted by Politico with nearly two dozen evangelicals suggest that most do not feel the need for an additional incentive this time around.

Despite initial skepticism over Trump’s past views on abortion, many evangelical voters feel that he has followed through on his anti-abortion promises, thanks in part to Pence’s influence. The former president’s commitment to anti-abortion policies has been a crucial factor in earning the continued support of evangelicals.

Now as Trump considers his options for a new vice president, it is reported that evangelical voters are looking for a candidate who is even more staunchly anti-abortion than Trump himself. This preference stems from a desire to have a strong advocate for anti-abortion policies in the White House and to potentially find a successor to carry on the principles of the MAGA movement.

It is noted that all eight of the vice presidential candidates under consideration by Trump are anti-abortion, although there are differences in their exact stances on the issue. The former president is expected to announce his pick around the party’s convention in July, and the decision holds significant weight as it will likely impact the support of evangelical voters and shape the direction of his campaign.
