"Believe me …"

Is it possible that evangelicals voted for Trump not in spite of evangelicalism, but because of it? Or at least, as [John] Fea put it in that May 2016 post, are their factors inherent within their movement that would make American evangelicals support Trump, even to respond to him with something like belief? In Believe Me Fea identifies several such factors, in particular “the politics of fear, the pursuit of worldly power, and a nostalgic longing for a national past that may have never existed in the first place.”
