Reader comment on item: What's a Conservative to Do? Vote for Pence

Submitted by Tom O'Rourke (United States), Oct 18, 2016 at 10:32


Good article and I happen to agree with your assessment of the candidates....except for your conclusion and recommendation. A vote for Pence is essentially a vote for Hillary - not a good thing.

In my opinion, the best strategy is to hold your nose, vote for Trump and, if he gets in, to trust our system of checks and balances to keep him under control. If he becomes too much unleashed, impeachment ( ( (many Democrats would gladly join this effort ) and replacement by Pence would happen.
