    If you are anti-Mr.Trump, what would it take to change your opinion, or is it "fixed" for 6 months?

    We have already had months of the "mud slinging" phase of Campaign 2016.  Next should be the serious "policy stuff" phase over the next six months (not to mention the possible grand jury and indictment of ex-Secretary Clinton.)
    If six months of the serious part of the campaign won't make any difference in your eventual vote, or decision to not even vote, the question is "what difference can this "stretch run" period make in the nationwide decision process?"  Will your vote be for "the same players" who put is in this national mess?

    I'm anti-Trump, mostly because he can't win.  With unfavorables over 50%, I just don't see how it can happen. Those measurable don't change very much.  Kasich is the only guy who could have beaten HRC.  The Party will be starting with a clean slate in 2017.  Maybe that's what we need.

    I also doubt there will a lot of "serious policy stuff" over the next six months. Unfortunately, I expect mostly gotcha quips and fluff pieces (mostly about HRC).  Lots of Twitter rants as well.

    There is no way HRC is being indicted. DOJ won't do it.  I would be shocked.

      For the "serious policy stuff" only time will tell.  We deserve it though, and hopefully it will not be more of the spend, spend, spending of the past.

    For the first time since I have been old enough to vote, I will not be voting. There is nothing serious that either of these wack jobs will be bringing in the next six months.
    I can not bring myself to vote for the lesser of the two evils because they are both equally as horrid!
    I think most people have already made their mind up at this point.

      I didn't sense any "wait and see" in this reply.  Keep posted on your local races though.  Someone running for the Senate, House, Governor, Mayor, City Council, and School Board could deserve your considered vote, if you are a serious American.

      Oh I will likely vote in my local elections, but I know 100% I won't be voting when it comes to the presidential race.

    I am steadfast in my decision that not one thing...nothing...Trump says or does could sway me to change my loathing of him. He is divisive, obscene. crude, arrogant, not well read (unless you consider the Enquirer a reputable news source), uses fear and scare tactics, and incites a mob mentality with his followers.

    For those who hate Hillary, but claim to be quasi-democrats, I need to impress upon them how the right-wing in congress obstructs legislation beneficial to the middle class, that they have no respect for women's rights, equal pay, a livable wage, health care, equal rights for all, they have a lust for fossil fuels, they don't respect honoring civil liberties, they vehemently exhibit a dislike of education, protecting worker's rights, they long to cut medicare and social security benefits, and have longing to incorporate church and state as one.

    This election will be the catalyst for the next SCOTUS justice and this process will be crucial regarding whether we move forward as a country or if we fall into the abyss of failed policies and discrimination of the past.

    To those who wish not to vote I plead with them to reconsider because their lack of involvement in the process is a slap in the face of all who have fought and died for the right to vote.

      Ditto on voting because it is our most precious right as citizens, other than actively supporting those who are chosen to lead us.  It is not just the Republicans who have a need to unify or decide what else to do.  The country as a whole needs to.
