#GoodPickTrump
Why it's a good pick: Pence has experience governing. He's been in the House of Representatives, and now he's the governor of Indiana. He has a solid conservative track record and he’s highly regarded by GOP members.
#GoodPickTrump
By picking Pence, Trump will be able to convince more traditional GOP voters to support him. While Pence may be a boring pick, he is a safe pick and lends more credibility to Trump's campaign.
#BadPickTrump
Why it's a bad pick: Pence gave in to criticism over Religious Freedom Restoration in Indiana and signed into law a bill that softened the original bill. People criticized the bill for discriminating against LGBT people.
#BadPickTrump
Picking Pence could derail Trump's antiestablishment vibe. He's made it this far through sheer force of personality and by tapping into the sentiment that the current system is corrupt and doesn't serve the average American. A party insider as his running mate flies in the face of this idea.
