One-Quarter of Americans Believe God Wanted Trump to Become President: POLL
One-quarter of respondents in a new poll say they believe God wanted Donald Trump to become president.
A Fox News poll of 1,004 registered voters found that 25 percent said “yes,” they believe God wanted Trump to be president, while a majority of 62 percent said “no.” Fourteen percent said they were unsure.
Over half of white evangelical Christians, 55 percent, feel God put Trump in office. That drops to 36 percent among Protestants and 20 percent among Catholics.
Trump voters are nearly six times as likely as Clinton voters to believe God wanted Trump to win the election (46 vs. 8 percent). The results are nearly identical among Republicans (45 percent) and Democrats (9 percent).

The poll, released Wednesday, comes two weeks after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network that God wanted Trump to be president.

“I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president,” Sanders said in January. “And that’s why he’s there, and I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”
