Hello everyone,
Does this sentence make sense? Is it correct?

We should vote for a candidate whom we believe in.

Thanks in advance.

    We should vote for a candidate whom we trust in!

    Trust in should be used and believe in is used when refering to God ,,,etc

    Maybe they are interchangable in specific contexts!

    Believe 'in' refers specifically to the 'beliefs' he/she holds for the office they are aspiring to.
    'Believe' refers to a more general term of agreeing with that candidate and it is impossible to know if you believe entirely with this person's views on everything.

    Hope that helps..

    Thank you very much. I guess relative pronouns should be omitted where possible. I'm not sure about how to use "belive", though.
