Survey says: Robert Jeffress, Franklin Graham, Jerry Falwell Jr. not religious happy campers

America's changing religious identity.  (PRRI)
Today, only 43% of Americans identify as white and Christian, and only 30% as white and Protestant.

White evangelical Protestants were once thought to be bucking a longer trend, but over the past decade their numbers have dropped substantially

Approximately six in ten white evangelical Protestants (62%), white Catholics (62%), and white mainline Protestants (59%) are at least 50 years old.
Muslims, Buddhists, and Hindus each constitute only 1% of the public.
