Campaign 2016 (Panic Time)

Updated on September 11, 2016

What about health care and the elderly

No leading 2016 presidential candidate can coast to victory with less than two months left to cross the finish line. Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump are both in danger of losing. It's Panic Time.

Team Trump is worried it hasn't raised the funds it will need for this final push.

The bigger Team Clinton has the needed funds...and then some, but the candidate herself is tiring and dragging heavy loads from the past that just don't go away.

In the process, Mr. Trump at best continues to misspeak, and Mrs. Clinton's comment labeling a large percentage of Trump voters as "irredeemable" casts doubt on her composure at this stage.

Neither major party candidate is satisfying the growing public demands that they use the final weeks of the 2016 Campaign to tell potential voters their specific plans for solving America's biggest problems.

There are still fireworks aplenty, but serious voters are asking "Where's the substance?"

Pollsters now claim that only 20% of voters remain undecided. How those voters decide to vote will decide the election.

The first of the televised presidential debates is likely to have a major impact on how that "undecided" vote breaks down, and the following two debates will "seal the deal" leaving only a tiny percentage of remaining voters who will only decide in the voting booths on Election Day.

It's "Panic Time."

Which candidate can keep their cool and finish the race strong to the end without displaying their panic, and what about some real substance while she or he is at it?


What about the military and veterans?

What about controlling and reforming immigration?

What about taxes, corporations, banks, and the national debt?

What about the courts, civil liberties, and the Constitution?

What about international terrorism and our alliances?

What about income inequality and jobs?

Have you already decided, or are you part of the crucial 20%?

It's "Panic Time."

      BlossomSB - Certainly who heads the #1 Economy and the #1 Military is of concern to both friends and rivals. Let's hope it is of legitimate concern to America's citizens as well.

      Who wins, indeed! It's certainly attracting interest from other countries looking on as well.

      Trump will likely look bad in debates because he has no filters. I hope his people can influence him to be more "presidential." I too want to hear substance. This was a very spot on piece you've written here.

      Insightful commentary on the election situation. A few more weeks and it will be over--but with what results?
