Why are Clinton and Trump the front runners this election year?


I'm baffled. According to polls, 70% of Americans say we are headed in the wrong direction. Yet, we have Clinton ahead in the Democratic primary. More over, on the GOP side, this was supposed to be the year of the people against the establishment. I get the popularity of Trump but why are establishment politicians endorsing Trump? Does this make any sense?

    Very good summary of where we are. I agree with most of what you said. Why are there so few choices on the Democratic side? you can tell me a 74 year old socialist and a 69 year old grandmother who was part of the Obama Admin. is the best they have.

    Of course Trump was a democrat at one time because like CA, NY is democrat territory, as are most of the unions. Do business in NY be a dem.

    All the candidates are off the leash, and they are all doing the same thing. Obama had no real political exp

    Why do Republican establishment politicians endorse Trump? You think they would know better. Why there are no better candidates on the Democratic side?

    Great insight. It is my belief that we get the government we deserve. If we continue this path, our republic is going downhill.

    Actually, I believe it;s going to be a Republican landslide this year regardless who is on either party's nomination. Never the less, it is curious why some politicians like Sessions and Cristie endorsed Trump.
