As Uber's stranglehold over the taxi industry increases, some New York yellow cab dispatchers have found themselves in an unprecedented predicament: sitting on millions of dollars worth of medallion yellow cabs, but not enough drivers to drive them.
Based on polling data and news sources, you might be under the impression that an overwhelming number of evangelicals—more than 80 percent—voted for Donald Trump. But this isn’t quite accurate. There isn’t any way to truly know what percentage of evangelicals voted for our president-elect. But using a more nuanced analysis we can reasonably estimate that somewhere between 35 percent and 45 percent of all evangelicals in America voted for Trump. Why are the media reports so off the mark? Here are four reasons:
I believe the Christian witness in the public square should emanate a transcendent beauty. Beauty in rhetoric, our speech, our writing, our interaction, our online presence, demands deference, not impudence.
I’ve recently been thinking about how thankful I am for the United States. It is certainly easy to take things for granted and focus on some obvious problems, but if we are willing to look, we can find reasons to thank God for this country.
I have noticed here in Cameroon that there really are not that many starving children. There are sick children, and children killed in accidents, but not really very many starving ones. So it was surprising to me the other day when we asked our language partner Bosco what made him happy and he said, “When I get to eat!” Bosco later asked me to come to the field with him one day to see what it was like.

We know the kind of nominee Donald Trump will try to get on the U.S. Supreme Court. He’s already released two lists of potential nominees, compiled with the help of the conservative Federalist Society and Heritage Foundation.

TNT's Ernie Johnson - an Emmy-winning NBA studio host and outspoken Christian - speaks candidly about his vote, the candidates, and the result of the 2016 presidential elections in a way all Christians can be proud of.
To those on both sides of the aisle, let me say this: This is a time for listening, not shouting; it is a time for those who won to be humble, not vitriolic; and it is a time for those who lost to remember that they still have a role to play in the political process. Democracy is designed to correct itself.
What will it take to make progress in peaceful relationships between people of different racial and ethnic backgrounds? Political commentators are paying close attention to attitudes and the racial breakdown of voters in this week’s United States presidential election. Clearly, some voted for Donald Trump out of fear and frustration that white uneducated Americans are being mocked and marginalized. In response, some immigrants and minorities fear what the future holds for them. We stand at a moment of opportunity. What is the way forward?
Dr. Lichtman, a historian at American University in Washington, is the co-creator of a historically based model that has correctly predicted the winner of the popular vote in the last eight presidential contests — and, back in September, predicted the supposedly unthinkable election of Donald J. Trump.
