What Happens When Americans Stop Going to Church

  • Despite declining church attendance in the South and Midwest, these regions have become even more Republican and Christian nationalist, contrary to expectations. People hold onto their political views even when they stop attending church.
  • Christian nationalism attracts many adherents who rarely go to church themselves, with only 54% of Christian nationalists attending church regularly. This ideology is likely to remain strong even as church attendance declines.
  • When people leave church, they often still identify as Christians and retain theologically orthodox beliefs. Without a church community, the nation's political system becomes their church, resulting in polarization and the application of their values in the political sphere with evangelical zeal.
