The 2016 presidential election has created a divide among evangelical women but most will still vote for Donald Trump, influential Christian leader Penny Nance says.

Nance on Tuesday wrote in an opinion piece on CNN and said "there seem to be three camps among evangelical women at this point in the campaign."

The groups, Nance says, are the die-hard Trump supporters, the voters who refuse to vote for Trump but won't vote for Hillary Clinton and the ones who don't like Trump but will still vote for him because "they find the election of Clinton so distasteful they are willing to support a less than noble leader."

Self-proclaimed Evangelicals, or "born-again" Christians typically vote Republican. Seventy-nine percent voted for Mitt Romney in 2012 as opposed to 20 percent for Obama. Four years earlier, 73 percent voted for John McCain while 26 percent picked Obama.

According to Nance, many have questioned why a lot of Evangelicals support Trump, who has been married three times and also glorifies wealth and brags of his adultery.

She says the die-hard Trump supporters "don't think Trump is one of them, but they don't seem to care. They don't want him as a pastor or a husband or even a friend. They want him to swim the moat with a knife in his teeth. They don't believe the polls and expect to win."
