American Jesus Madness 2017 – 1st Round Results

There are usually one or two matchups each round that come down to the wire, but I can’t remember so many razor thin victories in the first round.

I can’t tell you exactly why we had so many this year. Maybe it was tougher matchups, maybe it was having to choose between the lesser of two evils, or maybe it was something else entirely.

What I can tell you is Donald Trump was destroyed in the 1st round and that’s a victory for all of us.

Anywho, check out the results below, then come back at 9am CST to cast your vote for the Salacious 16 round!!
