Is Hillary Clinton Made Of Wood And Will She Float Like A Duck?

Apparently Ben Carson was literally preaching to the choir when he tied Hillary Clinton to Lucifer. Recently, Public Policy Polling found "33% [of Trump voters] think Clinton even has ties to Lucifer, to 36% who say they don't think so, and 31% who are unsure either way." There wasn't polling in the 1690s, but it would be a safe bet that hanged witches in Salem Village had better support for their innocence.

In one of the best examples of understatement in recent memory, the pollsters conclude, "Against that set of findings it's simply not very likely that many Trump voters will be moving into the Clinton column."

This, of course, is not the first time that a candidate has been associated with pure evil. In 2013, the same polling group found "13% of voters think Barack Obama is the anti-Christ, including 22% of Romney voters."

There are dozens of  policy reasons to oppose any politician, including Clinton or Trump. Those decisions can reasonably stem from a person's faith or lack of faith. Linking Clinton to Lucifer, however, seems to require the same lack of reason as the bizarre logic brilliantly illustrated below.
