And The Winner Is? Who do you think wil become the next President of the United States of America?


Trump's un-favorability rating is at 65%, while Hillary's is at 55%, but she also has a possible indictment hanging over her head, which could have an effect on voter turn-out---if she is indicted. And then there is Sanders, whose favorability ratings are high, but who is fighting an uphill battle given that the Democratic establishment has already chosen Hillary over him. And despite Trump's un-favorability ratings, people are turning out in droves to vote for him in the primaries. So what do you think? Who will win when all is said and done?

    Cheers to you Savvy for this blue ribbon question, and to you two for recognizing what will drive Mr. Trump to the top. Voters will vote "Out with the old, and in with the new!" this time around.

    Not to mention California, which is nearly half Hispanic. On the other hand, no one ever thought Trump could defeat 16-17 other candidates. The angry, fed-up white voters are coming out in full force this election cycle.
