This Dead Woman Summed Up How So Many Feel About a Donald Trump v Hillary Clinton Election

Mary Anne Noland of Richmond, Virginia died on Sunday at the age of 68. Rather than face the soul-wrenching choice of voting for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, Noland chose to go to the other side — at least according to her recent obituary in the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

"Faced with the prospect of voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, Mary Anne Noland of Richmond chose, instead, to pass into the eternal love of God," read her final word on the matter.

Noland's abject horror at the choices available this campaign season mirror those of many voters. Polling has consistently shown that Trump and Clinton have, historically speaking, some of the highest unfavorable ratings of any major party presidential candidates on record (though Trump's are considerably higher than Clinton's).

But while voters might profess hatred for both candidates, it's unlikely that many will take the hard way out, like Noland. Instead, they'll do what they do best: vote straight ticket.
