When the evangelicals lost Ted Cruz as a presidential candidate earlier this year, it was considered an extremely disappointing setback. Neither Trump nor Clinton have demonstrated themselves to be particularly religious.
Trump once referred to 2 Corinthians (spoken, “second Corinthians”), one of the books of the New Testament, as “two Corinthians” and his communion wafer as “my little cracker.” While Clinton did have a religious upbringing, her policies have never reflected the beliefs of values’ voters.
In April of this year, a Pew Research Center survey found that 56 percent of born-again Christians did not support Trump. By July, 94 percent of evangelical Republicans said they would vote for Trump over Clinton. Apparently, Trump’s worst is better than Clinton’s best.
