That survey begins in Middlesboro, Kentucky, where Binghamtown Baptist Church Pastor Boyd Bingham IV goes target-shooting in his Breitbart T-shirt while speaking about the tough times Evangelicals endured under President Obama.
“We are the people that brought Donald Trump to power,” he says. “And he pushes our agenda”—by which he means not only pro-life and pro-gun stances, but fervent support of Israel, which Boyd, like his pastor-grandfather and father before him, believes was bequeathed by God to the Israelis.
