Mike Pence Would Make a Better President than Donald Trump
Pence is more doctrinal conservative, while Donald Trump is less beholden to ideology and thus more able to do what he believes is best.
President Trump signed the
First Step Act,
a significant victory in criminal justice reform, which was opposed by many traditional tough-on-crime conservatives.
Pence appears to be
motivated by ideology
as opposed to financial gain.
Trump has stated that he is
"totally flexible on very, very many issues"
. His clear shift on many public issues indicates a lack of clear ideological agenda.
Pence’s politics are thoroughly conservative and fall in line with the basic Republican orthodoxy of the last 40 years. That was not always true for Trump.
Although Pence is more doctrinal conservative, he can be swayed by public opinion which indicates that he is willing to compromise on his conservative beliefs.
