I’m a religion reporter who’s been talking to evangelicals about why they feel marginalized and anxious about their future, as part of AP’s Divided America project this election year. AMA!
Hi, everyone! I’m AP national religion reporter Rachel Zoll based in New York, and I’ve been talking to conservative Christians in Kentucky and elsewhere about how they feel sidelined as their cultural influence wanes. Especially after losing the fight over gay marriage, they say a chasm has opened between them and other Americans. Some evangelicals, who feel steamrolled by liberals, are drawn to Donald Trump because he condemns ``political correctness’’ and says what he thinks.
Here’s our story on the subject: http://bigstory.ap.org/article/705be97dd9924d3c90f51532c2a99515
Here’s where you can access other parts of the project: http://interactives.ap.org/2016/divided-america/

Ask me anything -- about this project, what I learned, who I met or anything else!
EDIT: I'm wrapping it up. Thanks for the great questions!
