In an open letter published to Medium, 140 of tech’s largest names conclude Donald Trump is basically just an idiot.

Penned by former Twitter VP Katie Stanton, luminaries in the tech world say Trump “would be a disaster for innovation” and “he campaigns on anger, bigotry, fear of new ideas and new people, and a fundamental belief that America is weak and in decline.”

If that weren’t enough for you, try this passage out:

Donald Trump articulates few policies beyond erratic and contradictory pronouncements. His reckless disregard for our legal and political institutions threatens to upend what attracts companies to start and scale in America. He risks distorting markets, reducing exports, and slowing job creation.

The letter was signed by folks such as Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, Medium founder Ev Williams, eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and Slack co-founder and CEO Stewart Butterfield.

Interestingly enough, a new poll from ABC shows Clinton and Trump are in a dead heat for the popular vote, though electoral votes are believed to be heavily skewed towards Clinton.
