Because he doesn't have to be good, he only has to be better than Hillary Clinton. A candidate so bad, my cat buries superior choices every day. Also, to perhaps dispel some confusion, guns and abortion, that's why.
This brings us to the issue of a broken electorate system, I agree with Conservative Morality on that issue. As long as this FPTP electoral college exists, we will continue experiencing a race to the bottom with candidates.
Hillary is a career liar and asshole, but not to the extent of Trump. I'd rather have her in the Oval Office. I'm very pro 2nd amendment, and even I'd rather have Hillary.
I'd prefer a Presidential System akin to the one in France, where we have two rounds. Many states have it, I could see it working here. Or, better yet, a proportional system, but for our country, that is totally unrealistic.
I think the difference is a matter of degree. You say you're very pro 2nd Amendment, and yet you're willing to tolerate a candidate that pushes for an 'assault weapon' ban.
"We need to get the military style assault weapons off of our streets" is right next to "We need to exterminate the Jews" in my handbook of 'Absolutely unacceptable beliefs'.
