Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I don't know about that.

My impression from survey results (espec. PEW) published over the prior decade or so is, organized ecumenical affiliation has lost predictive power. This should be sel-evident as institutional control ("authoritarianism") of the Big Two has fragmented with identarian ethnic ("race") and sex ("CIS") political hegemony.

Religious dysphoria (my term) is a predictable result of 200 years indoctrination in ideology of "individualism" or "rational self-interested actors." A lot of spiritual and doctrinal cherry-picking in USA goes unaccounted, because freedom of since 1619. Respondents to dated survey panels can and will dispute identification with institutional leadership as is convenient, in principle or tax filing status.

Yet pollster have not adapted instruments to even rank issue-motivated political cohension among "non-affiliated", "independent", or "affiliated" religionists, because stereotype is a convenient rubric for communicating political party division (by two), which is exactly what they are paid to produce.

This data analysis is not fit for purpose.

After 2016 loss, Democrats know they need white male voters
Dems follow all compass directions to make pitches to voters

It's a Broad Brush survey and so paints with a broad brush.

Going to take a minimum of hundred years before the US is Post-Christian.

o, I don't know about that.

One could argue that customary milenniarist "movement" that recombines and redefines monotheism (eg. certainly christology) isn't well-understood these days, and you aren't.

But I am. Dysphoria. It's happening now. Churches are emptied out but the heh heh spirit lives.
