Why Donald Trump Is Going To Win The Election
Hi Everybody, this article was written merely to inform you guys of the all the facts written under the highlights of the election that we have seen so far. I am about as neutral as it gets in terms of politics so just so you know, this article does not represent my opinion. But, this is definetly not something Hillary Clinton would like to read. With that said, lets go!
An Introduction To Modern Politics
For the last 60 years, presidential elections have been run in a very traditional and repetitive way. Experienced politicians give the public hope-filled speeches with all the promises in the world, but come inauguration day, they don’t deliver on most of the promises they make. You would think the public would have figured this out eventually, right? Well, after 60 years of unfulfilled promises and corrupt political campaigns and governments, that day has finally come. In the year 2016, from a pool of seventeen candidates in the republican party, finally emerges an unconventional, untraditional, and politically incorrect candidate, Donald J. Trump. For months in the republican primaries across 50 states, people said that it was just a temporary uprising of the public, that he would never get the nomination for the party. Well, here we are one year later, with Donald Trump finally taking home the party’s nomination and preparing for the race to the White House after an earth-shakingly successful convention. Although Clinton’s negative record and Trump’s untraditional background are going to help him win in November, ultimately the voter turnout is going to be the reason that Donald Trump wins.
The first reason why Trump is going to win the election is Hillary Clinton's negative record. For the past year now, the American public has been getting a daily reminder of how dishonest and unreliable Hillary Clinton is. From the 35,000 deleted email scandal, to the Benghazi attacks on the US consulate, to her failed intervention in Libya which basically led to the start of ISIS, Hillary Clinton just might have the worst trust record of any candidate in the history of the United States of America. In fact, 70% of Americans find her untrustworthy according to multiple polls conducted by FOX, CBS, CNN, and Rasmussen. Initially, after being reported that Clinton had transferred her emails as Secretary of State on a private home server, she continuously LIED about it, first saying that she never transferred any emails with classified information onto her server, then saying that she was not aware of the rules that she was not allowed to use a private home server. That is something that the Republicans have strategically been pointing out and targeting as a point of weakness for Clinton ever since she started running for office. On July 6, 2016 the Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, announced that although Clinton was very careless with her handling of classified federal information, no charges will be brought against her. Not only this seemed to be a very influenced decision because of the mass power and influence Clinton has, the DAY BEFORE the indictment, her husband Bill, had a THREE-HOUR private conversation with the Attorney General, later stating that they were only talking about “family.” On top of her already very gray record, this was just another reason for Americans to distrust Clinton.
Another reason that Donald Trump is going to win is his untraditional background as a politician. In contrary to Trump, Clinton is one of the most seasoned politicians of this day and age and knows the system inside out. In other words, she has been classically trained to use language and rhetoric that people by nature want to hear, but eventually does not deliver sufficiently enough. Trump is a Brooklyn-raised real-estate businessman who founded his company off his father's brooklyn investments and eventually headed into Manhattan to start building skyscrapers. Ever since then he has become one of the world’s most successful businessmen, worth almost 5 billion dollars according to Forbes, and has gigantic casinos, hotels, and resorts all over the world. In 2015, he decided to enter the race for the presidency only because he saw the dire state of need the economy was in and wanted to help. Unlike Clinton, Trump taking this job was completely voluntary because he is already extremely rich and does not need any more money added to his bank account. Clinton however, has been in the political game since she was in her early 30’s and has not stopped running her political agenda until today. Clinton’s long and excessive history of involvement in politics and all of its dirty tricks will cost her the election in November.
Even though Clinton’s dishonest record and Trump’s untraditional background are going to help him win in November, the most important key to his success is the voter turnout. In the democratic party, the majority of the enthusiastic voters come from the side of Bernie Sanders and his supporters, which were mostly young, new voters who were actually excited about their cause enough to go and vote for their nominee. If Bernie Sanders had received the democratic nomination, I am positive he would have gone on to win the presidency. However, many of Sanders’ supporters do not like Clinton at all, and with the latest scandal about how the democrats tried to undermine Sanders with their emails questioning his religion, many of them are now so angry that not only will they not vote for Clinton, some of them may even switch over to the red side just to prove a point. With Hillary Clinton only depending on her old, half-hearted single mom type supporters from 2008, I think she will have a very hard time at winning in November. Unlike Clinton, most of Trump’s supporters are angry, middle-class working americans, who actually are very passionate about Trump and bringing change to the corrupt washington, and they will take the time to actually go and vote in November. If you could just vote from home, sitting comfortably on your couch with a bag of chips and drinking a beer while watching ESPN, Hillary Clinton would win in a landslide. But the problem is, to vote, you actually have to care enough about who you’re voting for to get out of your house and to go to a voting station and vote.
Although Hillary Clinton just may be the most qualified candidate to ever run for president of the United States, the election is going to be won by Donald Trump, a rich New York real estate billionaire and a TV Star, with a knack for just being the most controversial candidate for president in the history of the United States. And why? Well, let's just put it this way. Even though Clinton may be the most qualified candidate ever, she is also the most distrusted candidate ever. And all though she may disagree, she brought it all onto herself, from the now TWO email scandals, to the Benghazi attacks, to her failed intervention in Libya which essentially led to the start of ISIS, Hillary Clinton has repetedly stabbed herself in the foot when it comes to her trust issues. That's why Bernie Sanders was so successful in the primaries. People want change and they want it NOW. And all though this article is going to be dismissed by Clinton and her supporters, come November, I guess I get to say, "I told you so!"
