A new post-election survey reveals that a majority of those who voted for President Joe Biden don’t believe “God is the all-powerful, all-knowing, perfect and just creator” who rules over everything in Heaven and Earth today.
The Cultural Research Center at Arizona Christian University released the fourth in-depth report about its 2020 Post-Election Survey last week. The survey was conducted between Nov. 4 and 16, 2020. The latest installment of the survey focuses on the views of Biden’s voters as compared to the views of Americans who voted for former President Donald Trump as well as voters and adults as a whole.
More votes were counted in the 2020 presidential election than any other in U.S. history. Former Vice President Joe Biden got over 81 million votes, the most votes for any presidential candidate, to President Trump’s 74 million, the second-most votes in an election. Their totals also broke the record of votes cast for former President Barack Obama, who received 69.5 million votes in 2008.
Biden voters make up a plurality of those surveyed by the Cultural Research Center, accounting for 426 of the 1,000 respondents. Measured at 387, Trump voters were slightly less represented in the sample.
While 65% of Biden voters describe themselves as Christian, most (56%) said they see themselves as “spiritual but not religious” and 57% said they were not “deeply committed to practicing” their religion. Additionally, most of the Biden voters held views that were at odds with the teachings of Christianity.
For example, 68% of Biden voters believe that “The Holy Spirit is not a living entity but is a symbol of God’s presence, power, or purity.”
Sixty-three percent of Biden voters rejected the notion that “God is the all-powerful, all-knowing, perfect and just creator of the universe who rules that universe today” and 72% said that they believe that “a person who is generally good, or does enough good things for others, will earn a place in Heaven.”
Only 30% agreed that the Bible “is the actual or inspired Word of God and contains no errors.”
Seventy-five percent of Biden’s voters cite something other than the Bible as their most trusted source of moral guidance. Most Biden voters who fit into this category identified their feelings, experiences, friends and family as their sources of moral guidance.
