During this case study, I will explore the negotiation processes behind Christians who are vocal in their opposition to Donald Trump. I will be exploring these negotiations in the form of “memes”.  A meme is a captioned photo that is based on a cultural element or social construct. During this election season, memes have been a primary source of information used in the online environment to express political opinions. This election season is arguably the most diverse in terms of the political candidate’s ideologies. Donald Trump’s campaign has targeted Christian voters in America. His beliefs and values expressed through his campaign closely resemble the values of the Christian faith. This form of religious communication has been imperative in Donald’s election as the Republican party’s nominee. However, even though he has had much success in his campaign, there seems to be a great divide between Christian voters and their views of Donald Trump. The purpose of this case study is to analyze the cause of this divide and how Christians are negotiating their vote.
