Trump Elected President, Thanks to 4 in 5 White Evangelicals
Despite reservations expressed by many evangelical and Republican leaders, white born-again/evangelical Christians cast their ballots for the controversial real estate mogul-turned-politician at an 81 percent to 16 percent margin over Hillary Clinton.
Evangelicals of colorâ€”who represent 2 in 5 evangelicals, but arenâ€™t segmented out in most national political pollsâ€”largely preferred Clinton leading up to the election. But she ultimately underperformed among Hispanics and African Americans compared to President Barack Obama before her.
â€śThe story here continues to be continuity in the strength of evangelical support for GOP candidates, rather than greater intensity,â€ť said Kevin den Dulk, political science professor at Calvin College. â€śI suspect thereâ€™s some underlying changes in polling responses that would make Trumpâ€™s evangelical support seem greater than it has in the past.â€ť...
Yes, but Disney wasn't a [URL=http://tinyurl.com/hf4vqcz]]]Silvio B. Trump[/URL] nor did he have the gall to run for President.
John MacArthur wrote: Also, many present-day Christian activists seem to be unaware of how much their methodology parallels that of liberal Christians at the turn of the twentieth century. Like those misguided idealists, contemporary evangelicals became enamored of temporal issues at the expense of eternal values. Evangelical activists, in essence, are simply preaching a politically conservative version of the old social gospel, emphasizing social and cultural concerns above spiritual ones. In that framework the government becomes more and more the earthly ally (if he can persuade it to support his special agenda) or enemy (if it stays opposed or unresponsive to his agenda) of the Christian. But the ideal human government can ultimately do nothing to advance Godâ€™s kingdom, and the worst, most despotic worldly government in the end cannot halt the power of the Holy Spirit or the spread of Godâ€™s Word.

Also, Walt Disney went bankrupt 7 times, would you say he was a very unsuccessful businessman? Your logic is similar to that of a wooden chair.
i think this is a one-term gig. the dems only need to find a candidate without all the clinton scandals. they received more votes in this election, but did not get them distributed to win the states they needed to get 270 electoral college votes. in the meantime, they could fight for changing the electoral college system.
Yes, there were God fearing candidates running for president. A vote for Darrell Castle or Tom Hoeffling could have easily been written in, if they didn't have ballot access. Or one could leave the office of President blank and vote down ballot for godly men running for local offices. Christians don't have to settle for who is the less wicked when voting. They can research and find alternatives to support.
"You have 4 entire years" - it won't take that long for Trump to show his true colors and be revealed for what he is. Some are already betting he will be impeached- "And I'm quite certain Trump will give someone grounds for impeachment, either by doing something that endangers national security or because it helps his pocketbook.â€ť - from Allan Lichtman
As much as the 'conservative, dominionist loving- this- world type 'evangelicals' such as the Grahams and Albert Mohler deny it, Trump is a train wreck waiting to happen.

You know when someone is sympathetic to the DNC, or a moron, when they believe vulgar laced quotes by unnamed operatives in a liberal rag site like Politico.com. You have 4 entire years to post articles intended to smear Trump, divide conservatives and promote anger while shedding tears, so pace yourself

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus spoke with ABCâ€™s George Stephanopoulos (who is also a former Clinton operative) this morning, which inevitably led to a discussion about the anti-Trump protests last night, some of which devolved into rioting. Priebus aptly noted that it was the Left who accused Trump of not being willing to accept the results of the election. Now that Clinton has been beat, theyâ€™re lighting stuff on fire and vandalizing buildings Priebus "Itâ€™s the other side now that doesnâ€™t want to accept the fact that they lost the election"
â€” ABC News Politics (@ABCPolitics) November 11, 2016 â€śIâ€™m not sure why some of these things are going on,â€ť Priebus told ABCâ€™s â€śGood Morning Americaâ€ť on Friday when asked about anti-Trump protests popping up across the country. â€śIt was the Democrats who accused Donald Trump of not being willing to accept the outcome of the election. Now he won fairly overwhelmingly ... but itâ€™s the other side that doesnâ€™t want to accept the fact that they lost the election.â€ť

David A. Graham wrote: The breadth of Trumpâ€™s controversies is truly yuge, ranging from allegations of mafia ties to unscrupulous business dealings, and from racial discrimination to alleged marital rape. They stretch over more than four decades, from the mid-1970s to the present day. To catalogue the full sweep of allegations would require thousands of words and lump together the trivial with the truly scandalous. Including business deals that have simply failed, without any hint of impropriety, would require thousands more....

Trump is (in)famous for self-promotion, not for business acumen. He's a male Kim Kardasiam.
Jim Lincoln wrote: For all the bad-mouthing that Trump did of John McCain, you will note that he didn't volunteer for the Vietnam war.
McCain didn't need any "bad mouthing" to stop his attempt at president in 2008, he was born without a personality so the people didn't really find out who he was.
This is one of the problems that the Republican party has had in recent times, Trying to find a candidate of personality, charisma and stature capable of attracting the ordinary man/woman on the street.
Trump does have a personality. Perhaps some people don't like it, but he did get America to react!!
As an experiment having a successful businessman at the helm should be interesting since party politics are proving to be dull, boring and useless when it comes to leadership and government. And that is true in all western countries.
Perhaps it is time to look for another method of constructing governments?
Chris, probably the ones that shouldn't be kept will and those that should be won't.
Oh, in honor of Veteran's / Armistice Day.

Ah, but of course these Evangelicals take as gospel, "The Ends Justify the Means!" Is that in the Bible?
Yes Mike...I'm a realist and know all the promises won't, or can't be kept, but my hope is that he makes the necessary judicial appointments you mentioned, and I would love for not only Roe vs Wade to be nixed, but for all present sodomite marraiges to be nullified, and the whole thing to be eradicated from state and Federal law, among other things. I don't see either really happening, but that would be my hope. I was well aware that one man can't just walk in, sit down, and do everything he promised. Anyone who believed that needs to get a clue as to how a democracy operates. We can only hope for the best, especially for the millions of innocents being murdered in such barbaric ways and for any reason. Bottomline is that God's will is in place, and we should be very thankful that His will wasn't Hillary Clinton. Thank goodness for the wheat amongst the tares who He holds dear.
