Putting a 'lesser evil' in the White House

voting in AmericaA Christian leader says Donald Trump is the lesser of two evils in the November election.

Despite a long battle with the self-avowed socialist Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton has finally secured enough delegates to secure the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination.

Clinton was quick to tout the historical significance of being the first woman presidential nominee of a major party.

Meanwhile, Southern Evangelical Seminary President Dr. Richard Land says he is amazed at the results of a recent poll. 

"Seventy-one percent of registered Democrats think that Hillary ought to be the nominee even if she's indicted,” he explains. “So what if she is a crook, so what if she lied under oath, so what if she's broken the law, who cares? That says more about the Democrats and Mrs. Clinton than it does about us as a nation." 

Land says it is unfortunate that voters don't have good choices this fall.

Land, Dr. Richard (SBC, ERLC)"Frankly, I think we're dealing with a choice between a lesser evil and a greater evil, and Mrs. Clinton is the greater evil,” says Land. “That's my personal opinion, and if we don't help the lesser evil prevail over the greater evil, we become responsible morally for helping the greater evil to prevail."

According to Land, this could be the ugliest campaign ever, and he predicts it will be very close.
