American voters are fed up with the Republican and Democratic choices in this year's presidential election — but it's imperative they vote despite their anger and distrust, says Clarence Page, a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and member of the Chicago Tribune editorial board.
"The current presidential race has become for many of us less of a question about picking the best candidate as it is about picking the least-flawed candidate," Page writes in a column published Wednesday.
"To me, Clinton has been a flawed candidate after years of scandals. Some were legitimate, even if most were heated exaggerations. But Trump's election in my view would be, to use one of his favorite words, a disaster.
"Make up your own mind, but don't think your vote doesn't matter."
Page notes that a recent Harris Poll for the American Psychological Association found 52 percent of Americans adults admitting they are stressed out by the presidential race.
"Add to that the events of the past few days that have given many folks electoral whiplash," he adds.
"As often has been said of Chicago weather, if you don't like the latest scandal from the nominees, just wait a few minutes."
