    Can't tell yet because, we haven't heard all of the issues, plans, and solutions from the candidates. There are so many trivial distractions that making a decision is not reasonable at this point.

    The only candidate that has tried to talk about issues is Trump, but then the media, the democrats and the republican party digress, and focus on trivia.

    Bernie Sanders talks a lot about his plan and his solutions but like Trump they are drowned out by political distractions.

    The loyal party voters of both parties are getting too emotional and they are treating these campaigns like an episode of the Jerry Springer TV show.

    It has become a four facet campaign with a democrat, a republican, a socialist, and a republican outsider. The democrats and republicans took us from a decline starting in the 70s to the meltdown in 2008, and we haven't recovered yet.

    What I think is shrouded by the loyalty of the party voters, but as usual they disappoint what I would like to see.
    Final answer, it is too early for me to answer that ?

    Clinton in a landslide. That's not an endorsement.  I'm just facing reality.

    Either Cruz or Trump would lose pretty easily.  Trump would win only 5 or 6 states, while Cruz might get 10.  Kasich is a different story. He can deliver Ohio and possibly Florida.  Maybe Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Virginia is probably too blue now. Might get Wisconsin (despite the coming Cruz victory in the primary). 

    Regardless, tough year for my party.  House cleaning is coming and hopefully Chairman Priebus is on the way out.

    If Hillary Clinton is indicted for deliberately bypassing government IT security rules (by having private email server for State Department emails), IT security violations (telling people to take top secret messages off TS systems and send to her unsecured email), which are separate crimes, I don't think she'd be elected.
    And that's separate from the accusations that she gave various export permissions for companies in exchange for donations to the Clinton Foundation (bribery) and million dollar speeches by Bill (bribery).
    And that's on top of aides like Huma Abedin having a State Department job, Clinton Foundation job and corporate board job, the first one giving her access to secret info and all three paying her ... and other Clinton aides similarly double dipped with full time 100K+ salaries while working for her in other capacities.
