This article will only be of interest to those with functional concepts of honesty and integrity, so unfortunately that means it probably won't reach anyone who's still an actual Trump supporter (as opposed to someone who struggled to come to terms with having to cast a vote against Clinton under these conditions).

Russ, I won't deny that she was a tremendously competent candidate for President.

Notice that the decline started in 2014, about the time the Russians started the disinformation campaign.  With the aid of the Republicans, no doubt.

As Nate Silver says, the October FBI letter was a real stab in the heart.

I'm not even convinced she was a bad campaigner.

She wasn't a rock star like Obama or Bill, but truly bad campaigners don't come in first in the vote.

She got the most votes and it wasn't just a wafer thing margin like Al Gore.

"Bad candidate" Hillary got more votes than any other white candidate in history.

That looks like wishful thinking to me.  While those are theoretically problematic to Christian values (except for #9, which I would say is a purely ethical stance unrelated to religion) I don't see any complaint about them from the religious community.

I've never been convinced that the Religious Right was in it for the religion.

I think that's as much or more the point than the pseudo-optimism (which plays better than a pure red pill).

You really don't get it.  The only issue the Religious Right cares about is abortion.  As long as Donald Trump pretends to be pro-life, he will have their vote.

Sounds like you think someone's registered significant agreement with the idea that the Radical Religious Right Wing is actually moved by the issues pointed out in the article, but I don't think even the author of the article thinks that, and no one in here's suggested they do either.
 
To the contrary, the article is suggesting that according to Christian doctrine those issues should kill cartoon president support for Christians, but Evangelicals are demonstrating they have a very non-Christian agenda driving them.
