God Fearing Folks Like Trump....But Why??

Has there been a remark more illustrative of this wretched election than Donald Trump’s avowal, “I love the poorly educated!”? (YEAH...that's a VOTE GETTER!) Uttered on the evening of his victory in the Nevada primary, this astonishingly candid admission went both ways, suggesting not only that Trump’s campaign is dependent upon a bottomless well of public ignorance, but that he is himself the most ill-informed major party presidential nominee in American history.
......... according to a July Pew poll, 78 percent of white evangelicals have expressed support for him, compared to just 73 percent who backed Mitt Romney at the same time in 2012. (NO...seriously?) The very voices who once bemoaned “the death of outrage” over Americans’ opposition to criminalizing Bill Clinton’s sex life now want us to believe that Donald J. Trump is morally fit to occupy the Oval Office. Which is odd, because Trump is a living repudiation of everything religious conservatives claim to believe in. A thrice-married, epically greedy, congenitally dishonest serial adulterer who brags about his sexual conquests and exalts the rich and powerful while heaping scorn upon the weak and vulnerable, Trump is the villain of Sunday school parables made real. He worships not the Lord but material wealth. His entire life is a rejection of the Judeo-Christian nostrum that God put us on this Earth to help those less fortunate than ourselves.

I read this today, too. I don't think I actually learned anything - it's all been elucidated before. It's a shame that those who NEED to be made aware of it are either unwilling to read such material, or too blinded by ignorance and partisanship to actually allow themselves to gain any insight or knowledge.
Thanks from Clara007

These are all facts. Trump's life (except for his business success) is a train wreck.
SO......why do millions of voters STILL say they trust Trump more than Clinton?
I just don't get it.
Today Trump is talking about expanding the military, including billions in military spending. This would add about $500 billion in spending over the next 10 years unless other cuts are made. AND this is the party of fiscal responsibility?? After seven years of complaining about Obama's spending habits.
What am I missing?
