More than four in five white evangelical Christians voted for Donald Trump in 2016, according to a Pew Research poll. Their level of support surprised some observers who thought that aspects of Trump's personal life, including his multiple marriages, would make him an unpopular choice for the deeply religious. We'll discuss the historical relationship between conservative Protestantism and conservative politics with Pulitzer-prize winning historian Frances FitzGerald. Her new book is  "The Evangelicals: The Struggle to Shape America."

Guests:

Frances FitzGerald, author, "The Evangelicals: The Struggle to Shape America; author, "Fire in the Lake," which won the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award
