One prominent Republican group has set its mind of getting Donald Trump out of the White House.
According to a new report by Politico, The Lincoln Project has launched a new campaign to get white evangelical voters away from Trump.
“On Wednesday, Vote Common Good will launch a new partnership with the Lincoln Project, an anti-Trump GOP group founded by veteran Republican strategists, to mobilize faith voters to reject Trump on Election Day,” reported Gabby Orr. “The initiative will focus on courting white evangelicals and white Catholics — two demographics Trump won by significant margins in 2016 — who have lost patience with the president’s behavior or been disappointed with his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and the Black Lives Matter protest movement against racism.”
The campaign will focus on six key states: North Carolina, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida.
Those battleground states will be crucial in the election and former Vice President Joe Biden currently leads Trump in all those states.
While Trump won the white evangelical vote by over 65 points, his victory in 2016 was narrow in many key states. That means that even a small drop in white evangelical support could put his re-election in grave danger.
