Trump vs. Clinton in the 2016 US Presidential Race
Does anyone in America really think that this scenario will not come about, barring some astonishing event?
Bernie Sanders will not the get the nomination. I simply cannot believe that what he offers is what mainstream America wants. Free college, free this and that, no wonder the gullible 20-somethings flock to him. Like many candidates, he never provides any details about any of his plans. It is ironic how so many support this 74-year old man.
The Republicans are an odd bunch. Trump's elect-ability has not diminished much since the Summer of 2015. So many like what he says because it is what they are thinking about American society. Trump is, in many ways, like a breath of fresh air after the Obama mess. Cruz is trying to appeal to the same crowd as is Rubio. They are similar in some respects and their differences are nuanced. In foreign policy, electing Trump might get the US into a real war again due to this bellicose manner and wanting to make America great again. I think Cruz and Rubio would be more cautious and prudent. Of these two, Rubio, would be the better in this area with lots of experience.
As to Bush, this is a guy who has the money yet is simply not presidential material. He is not comfortable in the camera or debates, he seems like he is unsure of himself. He refuses to believe that despite his effort, he is in last place and simply has little appeal to the voting public. He should simply face reality and end the pain, admit failure.
So, if it is Trump vs. Clinton, the Fall of 2016 will be most interesting. Who would you for? I like aspects of both. Like many Americans, I am undecided.
