Mohler: Election 2016: Where Are the “Nones”?

In the 2016 presidential election, political analysts are increasingly interested in how the “nones” will vote in this election.

I have compassion, as do almost everyone in this country, for the 70,000 transgendered individuals living in the United States. But I loathe the NCAA.
