Stick a fork in Trump, he's done.

As this nation gets closer and closer to what will undoubtedly go down in history as the single most important election of our lifetime, Donald Trump has steadily lost support from several of his prominent bases — namely the evangelical crowd — as they publicly turn their back on America’s dictator and proudly endorse his Democratic opponent Joe Biden.

According to a bombshell report, over 1,600 faith leaders have now officially endorsed former Vice President and Democratic nominee Joe Biden for President, several of which could have significant influence among the overall evangelical vote.

The official endorsement was compiled by Vote Common Good, a faith voters outreach group, this week who says that they are now the largest group of clergy to publicly and officially endorse a Democratic presidential candidate in modern history.


Vote Common Good Executive Director Pastor Doug Pagitt said:

This record-breaking group of endorsers shows that President Trump’s lack of kindness and decency is energizing faith communities and will cost him this election. Four years ago, many religious voters decided to look the other way and give Trump a chance, but after witnessing his cruelty and corruption, a growing number of them are turning away from the president.”

Among those to throw their support behind Biden is none other than Jerushah Duford, granddaughter of prominent evangelical leader and supporter of Donald Trump, Billy Graham.

The Washington Post reports that Duford has quite a bit of clout and name recognition among the evangelical crowd and is part of a group called “Pro-Life Evangelicals For Biden.”

Speaking with the Post, Duford said, “There are so many evangelicals who are one-issue voters and abortion is their issue. It is an issue that singlehandedly prevents them from voting for Biden. I want to validate that struggle that people are having who care about pro-life issues.”

This isn’t the first time Graham’s granddaughter has expressed her criticism for Trump and the evangelical crowd that supports him, penning an op-ed for USA Today in which she described feeling “homeless” in the modern church.

It’s clear that Trump is floundering, losing more and more support every day, with no time to recover.
