Who would’ve thought the #NeverTrump clique would prove to be holier than the Pope? Last week at the Values Voters Summit even the Rolling Stones were providing a powerful reason to come to terms with Donald Trump as the Republican nominee.
It says a lot about this presidential campaign that consulting the Stones was no stranger than other attempts made during this unusual political season to persuade normally reliable Republican voters to support the nominee of their party.
There’s something about the slogan: “He’s the Lesser of Two Evils!” that fails to inspire.
Voters face the prospect of embracing a known risk now, in return for an uncertain payoff in the future.
Much like the mother who urges her child to give Pneumonia Hillary a big hug, because it may be her only chance to ever touch a candidate.
Trump’s unorthodoxy on social issues presents a particular problem for evangelical voters who make up the bulk of the Values Voters audience. They know when Ted Cruz talked about “New York values” he wasn’t making any reference to 9/11.
Trump’s multiple divorces, adultery, shaky Biblical knowledge and laissez faire attitude toward homosexual marriage are big problems for Christians.
Or at least those issues were influential when there were options.
Now the option is Hillary.
So what happens when Trump addresses evangelicals as the GOP nominee? Click the link below and you’ll find out. Thanks.
