KNOX COUNTY, Tenn. (CBSDC) — A 92-year-old Tennessee woman registered to vote for the first time so she can cast her ballot for Donald Trump.
WVLT-TV reports Beada Corum of Knoxville didn’t vote before because she was never passionate about a candidate. Now Corum will vote for Trump for president next year.
“He’s got a strong mind and he speaks it out just the way he thinks it ought to be,” she told WVLT.
Corum believes Trump will help straighten out the country.
“We got a good country, but it’s going downhill so fast, and we need somebody in there who can straighten it out,” she told WVLT.
The mother of eight says her vote will not go void.
“I pray that I’ll vote for the right person,” Corum told WVLT. “And, when you pray with all your heart, it won’t go void. That’s my prayer.”
A recent CBS News poll finds Trump is the favorite among Republican primary voters at 24 percent.
