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.


If it is Trump vs. Clinton, who would you vote for?

      Inspite of the NY Times endorsement of him, and inspite of my comment to him that he looks and sometimes speaks "too much like a stereotypical pro-bankers Republican," I think Governor Kasich is probably the most experienced, and the best qualified, and administratively qualified Republican candidate for the presidency.

      Maybe so, but he will not be the nominee. I like him but I don't think that will happen.

      "The mills of the gods grind slow, but exceeding fine." In the end, time will tell. In the meantime see my question about last night's debate and commiserate with me.

      Donald J. Trump can never win the US President Election. If he wins, it will be disastrous for the US. Because he is dividing the US nation.

      Firstly I think Clinton will have an upset and not ge the nomination which may go to Bernie Sanders. Secondly, I think Trump is a strong candidate and he should win. Too long have US presidents been molly coddling to all and sundry.

      The most recent Republican debate was enlightening. Trump acted like a teenager arguing over trite issues and was booed often. Rubio and Kasich acted presidential and level headed. Carson and Cruz and Bush were all just so-so. Carson and Bush simply are not good public speakers, many people are not, they stumble and stutter in front of crowd. Trump, Rubio, Kasich and Cruz are all much smoother. Look, if it really is between trump and clinton, I will lean towards Clinton but I am still unsure.

      I do think Sanders will have the nomination. He does have pretty solid models from Europe to work off from concerning his ideas about college tuition and equal taxation. He's also the ONLY candidate that actually cares about the struggles of people of color in America.

      Okay, but that is like thinking there is no global warming and climate change when there is, it is wishful thinking. Sanders only appeals to the college ages because of the free tuition which will never happen. It certainly will not happen soon after he is elected, there would many hurdles to jump. He is promising things that are nice to have's but are not practical to implement within 4 yrs.
