In an election year where both presidential candidates appear to be polarizing leaders, young evangelical voters at Cedarville University remain uncertain on what candidate they will select November 8.

In a random poll of Cedarville University evangelical voters by students in Dr. Glen Duerr’s Qualitative Methods class, students from Midwest states are leaning toward Republican candidate Donald Trump—but not by an amount that one would expect, or see in previous elections.

In the poll that was conducted the week of September 11, 2016, 52 percent of the students who responded listed Trump as the candidate they are likely going to cast a vote for in November. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson was selected by 12.5 percent, and Hillary Clinton received 5 percent. Surprisingly, 23 percent of the respondents said they were still undecided.
