Why the country’s youth are abandoning religious conservatism

There’s been a lot of media attention recently to the changing demographics of the United States, where, at current rates, people who identify as “white”
are expected to become a minority by the year 2050
. But in many ways, the shift in national demographics has been accelerated beyond even that.
New data from the American Values Atlas shows
that while white people continue to be the majority in all
but 4 states in the country
, white Christians are the minority in a whopping 19 states. And, nationwide, Americans who identify as Protestant are now in the minority for the first time ever,
clocking in at a mere 47 percent of Americans
