Yesterday Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, told CNN's Wolf Blitzer that he did not believe that a vote for Donald Trump was equal to an endorsement of the Republican candidate. I watched the entire 10-minute interview and I think Chaffetz has a point.
He is, after all, representative of what millions of voters around the United States are thinking right now; they must do their American duty and cast a vote but they cannot, in good faith, publicly stand by either of the major candidates. Some believe Hillary Clinton is two-faced and a liar; others think Donald Trump is a misogynist, sexual predator. Last week FiveThirtyEight estimated that 15 percent of the electorate is still undecided. That’s almost 22 million people on the fence about the next leader of the United States. On Election Day they will be forced to make the same uncomfortable decision Chaffetz did — can we blame them if they don't choose our side?
Watch the entire segment below. It's a fantastic back-and-forth.
