Do any of us, "really" know the heart of another to so determine that? Perhaps you should be correcting God for allowing them into positions of authority?

Doesn't matter which country. I'm curious.
Such a question can probably only be answered on a small town local level politics. There the people would personally know the politician and would know whether he was truly a believer.

As one goes up the ladder in politics, then they must use the politically correct language and share the politically correct views to gain or stay in power. Thus, as to exactly who they are and what they believe becomes blurred.

It is of course, extremely difficult to know the heart of someone. It's hard to know our own hearts sometimes.
Harder to know the heart of a friend we personally know, and even harder yet, to judge the heart of someone we
have never personally met.

But the Bible says we will know them by their fruits.
If this is true, the current leader of the US regularly prays and attends Christian worship services.
He has a Christian vice-president. This administration supports Israel.
This administration has fought against liberalism.
This administration has fought against, and even outlawed abortion in some states.
This administration hasn't added any new laws supporting homosexuality, and has actually reduced some national level laws supporting this.
This administartion is against Muslim terrorism and ISIS.
This administration opposes free-immigration to people who want to change the Christian-Judeo values of this country.

It's hard to be sure... but it seems like He is a Christian.

I know of a few in each of the main political parties in the UK. There's a significant difference here to America in that religious affiliation of any kind is not a vote-winner. That sweeps away much of the motivation for politicians to overstate their faith in a hypocritical way.

A couple of years ago the leader of the Liberal Democrat Party - a Christian - resigned because his personal belief against same-sex marriage became such a distraction. Whenever he went on TV or Radio he'd be endlessly questioned on this issue, with the result that his policies rarely got discussed in detail.

It is shameful that anyone should be afraid of sharing their faith, and despicable that media demonize those who do, sounds like your UK media is just as terrible as in the US.
