Rob Portman thinks voters are that stupid - Voting for Pence, but not Trump

Rob Portman rescinds endorsement of Donald Trump

In a statement posted to his campaign website, Portman said he instead will be voting for Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, who is serving as Trump's running mate. Trump said earlier Saturday he will not be dropping out, and even if he did, it's unclear that Republicans could replace him. So Portman, who had maintained distance with Trump despite previously endorsing him, would likely be casting a protest vote.

"I thought it was appropriate to respect the millions of voters across the country who chose Donald Trump as the Republican Party nominee," Portman said. "While I continue to respect those who still support Donald Trump, I can no longer support him. I continue to believe our country cannot afford a Hillary Clinton presidency."
