American voters wanted change, says one third party presidential candidate who believes that Catholic social teaching will answer many of their desires.
"There is most definitely a hunger to apply the teachings of the Church to the situations that really matter," Mike Maturen, 2016 presidential candidate for the American Solidarity Party, told CNA in an email interview on his support from voters across the country.
"I think the primary message sent by the voters on election day is that they were tired of the status quo," he said of the overall presidential election. Voters "wanted change. In the minds of the electorate, Mr. Trump represented that change."
"I believe that much of our platform can fulfill what the people are looking for," he added.
