I guest Donald Trump will be the winner . but if that happen maybe bring a lot trouble to USA.sounds like American need some change on the mean time
Mrs Clinton & the RINOs should just keep blasting birther Trump as to why he said Obama's Birth Certificate on the White House website is "a forgery" and why he said about BHO "I don't know where he was born."
And never let up on it!
Oh, she's bashing him alright and if he doesn't start doing the same, he's in trouble--especially now with the Mexican judge comments.
I think Hillary will win this election marginally. The main reason of Trump's loss will be his negativity. He thinks that he is right in every thing.
Quite possible, especially now that Trump is getting more press for his negative behavior. If he doesn't try to make nice to minorities, he could lose.
Appreciate your observations, Kartik.
His loss won't be like Goldwater or McGovern, but it will be similar.
During the past 40-50 years only Ronald Reagan and William Jefferson Clinton have been able to charismaticly woo large segments of the opposing political party. The Reagan Democrats as they were coined, were a group of conservative to mildly liberal democrats, who no longer believed in either party as the last two presidents Carter (democrat) and Nixon/Ford (Republicans - Ford took over after the Watergate scandal) could not turn the economy around. As such, a more conservative mindset took hold allowing for the charismatic Reagan to win soundly. For Clinton, he was able to woo moderate Republicans and liberal Republicans because of slow economic growth and Desert Storm, which people wanted out of. The issue with this election is that neither Trump nor Hillary Clinton are very personable. Sanders had his moments, but is now looked at as mostly quirky.
Another issue to look at is voter turnout. Republicans by "percentage" tend to turn out in greater numbers than Democrats. However, there are more registered Democrats in this country, and therefore do not need to turn out in as high a percentage to equalize the Republican vote. This election will come down to 5-6 states. It is entirely possible for Trump to win more states and lose the election due to the electoral college votes of each state. He will need to win Ohio, Florida, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Colorado, and Wisconsin to win. he could maybe lose one of those state like CO, but most likely will need it all. So long as no one launches a last minute 3rd party entry I think Clinton wins an extremely close election where they may not call it under the wee early morning hours.
The American people are looking for a change. After Obama they seem to be looking for someone completely different. If that is definitely the case then no wonder Trump seems to be getting the votes in the preliminaries. Hillary would be a great historic change in the way people vote in the US Presidential Election and since the election of Obama was historic then they may be looking to get back to a little bit of normality. For me if I was American I might have voted Hilary but that would depend on the indictment outcome. It is a hard choice to make but for me Trump is definitely not Presidential material.
Unfortunately, Trump is pretty much a "big mouth." I don't know if Hillary will be indicted, but she should be. She knew having an unsecure server was illegal, but she did it anyway.
The committee report on Benghazi is being reviewed by the Democrats on the committee and then it will be released amidst the normal "biased and political" complaints from those protecting former Secretary of State Clinton who was responsible then.
Should be another cover-up like the Warren Commission, Starr report, 9/11 Commission, etc. www.911truth.org
Whoever wins the election. How could we have anybody else?
This comes down to three states... PA... OH...FL
Chances that there are enough other states to fall to Hillary or Trump that normally wouldn't is slight. I'm sure one or two that swing on occasion like VA might surprise... but really the states above will be the deciders like they have been the last three elections.
So... it really is dependent upon what is to come... based on primary numbers, Trump was equal to Hillary in support in those states, so it comes down to those who supported other candidates choosing between the two.
What are the factors?
Hillary/Obama gave us Libya/Benghazi, Syria, Russia/Ukraine, China expanding its global control, the Iran cave in, ISIS, the spread of global terror throughout Europe, in essence a wonderful Foreign track record.
Our economy? All the companies that are trying to flee to Mexico and China, etc.?
I think it will come down to the debates, most likely the first debate, that is what will decide this election... this debate between these two will be the most watched debate in history, and perhaps one of the most watched events on tv this year.
Hello Ken. I appreciate your comment. To be sure, it will be interesting to see how Trump does in debating Hillary. So far, he hasn't really taken her on. I have to wonder what he is waiting for. HRC has balls of steel. Let's hope Trump does as well.
Hi ken and savvydating I would not hazard a guess but Hope that Trump does not win. I can remember Hitler's rhetoric before the pusch that made him Chancellor of Germany and set off the Second World War. I pray the American People are on the Ball.
I think Trump needs to act Presidential. If Trump applied his genius to foreign diplomacy and dealing with Congress, he could be the most astute, shrewdest politician in our history.
With regard to Judge Curiel, Trump should have filed a motion to remove the Judge from the case instead of mouthing off.
If Trump continues speaking carelessly thereby allowing accusations of racism, bigotry and whatnot; he will lose the election.
Hillary Clinton already has a lock on it. Consider, she WILL win, based on polling and common sense:
- California (52% C - 34% T): 55 electoral votes
- Connecticut (47% C - 39% T): 9 (64)
- Maryland (63% C - 27% T): 10 (74)
- Michigan (48% C - 37% T): 16 (90)
- New Jersey (47% C - 36% T): 14 (104)
- New York (56% C - 33% T): 29 (133)
- Wisconsin (47% C - 35%): 10 (143)
That is just 127 electoral votes short and no sane person would say Trump could win any of those states, and those states are the only ones that have had polls taken; there is a slew of other Blue states not counted.
When I use the same criteria (either 10+ points ahead or just shy and the state has never in modern history gone RED or BLUE, Trump ends up with ... none.
I rest my case.
Uhhh, yeah, Dems always win those states... PA...FL..and OH will decide this election, like they have the past few elections..
Still living in the statistical world where people are objects. Your stats are only valid when people are stupid and act like sheep. baaaaaa
Birther-Trump will win the vast majority of LEGAL popular votes.
I think it is Hillary.and I am very exited, of going to get a woman president to America.
Personally, I don't care if it's a woman or a man. I'd just like somebody decent...
Good Choice roselinsojan ~ MILLIONs of Americans are just as EXCITED as U are ~ Not ONLY is Hillary the BEST Qualified & Mentally Competent Woman Right Now to be "Commander in Chief", but she's Unquestionably the BEST Qualified Person Period ~
I cannot envision a world where either of these are president.
The American people want change. Conservatives see Hillary as more of the same and she has deeply offended many of us who would normally vote liberal. Her many ethical and legal issues will sink her. Watching her in action has only firmed the idea she is completely selfish and amoral.
Trump on the other hand is change alright...the problem is he is crazy change and in an America where the middle class is scratching and clawing to stay middle class, we need someone who will support living wage job. Trump is poster child for companies who see workers as disposable. Electing him would be a disaster. His history of dealing with his ventures shows he has no ethics or concern for workers/citizens at all. As long as it is legal, he feels it is ok.
Neither seems electable. It appears this may be the first time in American history an independent could win. In the past people have feared throwing away the vote or just chosen not to bother voting. This time our choices are so terrible, that there is a good chance people will be willing to take the chance on an independent. You are throwing away your vote on either of these, but the consequences of not voting would be so drastic this time.
I don't know who will win. Only who will not. Neither of these are viable candidates. Hillary could still end up indited and Trump could still not get the nomination since he is so hated by other republicans. We could end up with 2 completely different candidates. If not we may end up with an independent.
Thank you for an honest and heartfelt reply, Mia. I also wish we had two completely different candidates. Oh, how I wish. Gary Johnson is "the" Independent/Libertarian. Wouldn't it be funny if he got the nomination? But I don't see it.
So many things have happened none of us could have seen coming. The frustration Americans feel is being felt. I suspect this election will make things even worse and the next election may see the end to the 2 party system that has failed us.
There have been some successes along the way, so I have not given up on the 2-party system. The real problem is that most Americans don't research their candidates. Thus, we choose poorly. It's really kind of pathetic.
We have seen what the last several decades have done to the US. They were run by both parties, and different times and with different levels of control, but the result was always a decline.
It took both parties to drop the ball during 2008 when the entire congress was campaigning. You can throw the guilt on the other party, but the fact remains that both parties failed.
The decline of the US started in the 70s, and continues today, and once again both parties have failed. Both parties get us into wars, and both parties fail to win the war.
The last war that the US won was in 1898. Winning a war is not winning military battles, it is won when the issues have been resolved rather than deferred waiting the a later war to continue the issues.
Iran, N Korea, China, Russia, Iraq, and Afghanistan are still threats to the US, and peace.
So if we go to a pure Democrat or pure Republican for the presidency it will result in what we have seen numerous times in our recent history.
Trump is the only positive deviation from the gridlocked congress. While closer to the Republicans than the Democrats he is the most independent presidential candidate we have.
Hillary Clinton has no qualification, no real platform and certainly no accomplishment for the country or the people. My hubs on these issues came up empty in the comments.
The democrats and republicans are divergent and they refuse to compromise. That is the definition of groundhog days.
Trump is the only one with leverage created by the people that can force both parties to come together, at least on some things. It is not his power, but the power of the people that want the US have a working congress, and bring prosperity back to the US.
Hillary especially, along with both parties are subservient to the power and control of big business. They failed to contain them when they went bankrupt, and now they are rejuvenated by a healthy infusion of trillions of tax payer dollars.
Loyal political party voters are clones, and sheep and are herded by the party, allowing We The People, to transmute into We The Party.
Congress is not a local sports team, when one party or the other fails so does congress, and so does the US.
Right now Obama owns the Clinton push for the presidency, as he is using his resource to keep her from jail. Hell, he can even pardon her if they indict her before January.
Trump is the only one looking out for the safety, and prosperity of the US.
The lies that the liberal media tell on a daily basis will sway the majority of voters, who know nothing about politics. That means Hilary will win. She's got it in the bag,unfortunately.
It's been looking that way lately. And yes, the majority of voters absolutely know nothing about politics. They just fall for the rhetoric: Republicans bad, Democrats good. It drives me insane.
Where I live if you are not a conservative, christian (republican) you best hush and not admit it. Democrats are thieves and socialists and republicans are "Hard working Christians".
It's the opposite where I live, so I know what you are feeling.
What surprises me in American politics is that you only have two parties. It would be more democratic if you had 5 or 6. Is there a Green Party or an animal rights party...
I am with Mia Town. Peter, I think it is a function of how our gov't is constructed; and the initial fight over ratification of the Constitution was between two diametrically opposed views, there was no middle ground.
Whoa! Lucy, you got some 'splaining to do. Our constitution has worked quite well until the left, and especially this President, began "re-defining" it.
First, Savvy, your response to my comment, assuming it was, was non sequitur. Second, it appears your source of information is non-factual Right-wing talking heads. There isn't an iota of fact to back up your statement.
Esoteric, we have a system of checks and balances. We got the job done. We had, after all, just left England, so naturally the founding fathers had to tackle complex questions. I was merely challenging you to explain your comment by using humor,
I'll except that, sorry. However, my answer was to why we have a two-party system and not multi-party like so many others. (I should have pointed out to him that Canada is essentially a two-Party system as well, who are more divided than we are)
No problem, Esoteric. How do you think having multiple parties is useful? Do you have an example of a country where that works? That is not something I am familiar with.
Actually I don't think multiple Parties works at all. When I look at England, France, Israel and the like, all I see are obstacles to effective gov't. The 2-Party system fails only when "compromise" disappears from the political lexicon.
I agree with you there, which is why I have complained about Obama's having overridden Congress too often. Contrary to popular belief, he would not always give them a chance to debate, thus his over use of executive order, which is not compromise.
It would be nice to see Clinton make it but if the indictment interrupts her then I think Burny should get the nod. He's not a bad choice. He seems to be a fair and reasonable man. The government needs to be more for the people and by the people of which he seems to be for. At least Hillary has been 1st lady before. I'm sure she shared in and influenced Bill's decisions when he was president.
Hillary's Will become the next President of the United States of America
I'm holding out to see if they prove the voter fraud in the primary that has kept Bernie from winning more states. Or if Hillary gets indicted.
But I'll take the option from those two.
If we're talking about honesty as a qualifier, there really is no difference between Trump and Hillary. Both lie to promote their own ambitions, both will run the country in ways that favor them more than the citizenry.
The difference will be in the fact that Hillary is not a totally outward racist and I think she can handle the criticism. As soon as Trump gets criticized, he's going to nuke someone. He's nothing more than a petulant child.
The idea of a wealthy candidate not beholden to special interests is a great thing. We just needed one with more moderate views. This one is bat-shit crazy.
We absolutely needed someone "with more moderate views" and we had some, but quickly threw them overboard for some unaccountable reason.... These are strange times.
It hasn't come up yet, but as I understand it, NY liked very much how HRC represented them and while she failed, she did try to get healthcare 4 all. That doesn't sound self-serving to me.
& are these the "times" that try men's (& women's)
Not necessarily true in that New York already has the highest state and local tax burden in the U.S.
That may be true, but has nothing to do with her time as a Senator from NY. You need to look to the Governor and Mayors regarding their tax structure.
While NY is high, Nebraska is higher.
False. Not based upon cost of living. The point is that the more govmt. is expanded the tougher it is for the middle class to make a decent living, because they get taxed to death.
As a foreigner, I must say I have no illusions about Trump, but I perceive him as the lesser evil for a few key reasons. Hillary has been quite literally involved in criminal activity in the past and happens to be a Clinton (hello hello, wife of Bill Clinton, known worldwide as the rapist president), which makes it specially hilarious when she says she stands for women's rights. Hillary has also been openly supportive of the very worst administration in south america, including the currently impeached president of Brazil Dilma Rouseff, which is now being prosecuted because she led a huge corruption scheme alongside her predecessor and mentor (which happens to have had support from Barack Obama). Her entire campaign seems to be like a huge populist trap built on false catering to minorities, but will end up just enforcing an even worse stablishment.
Bernie is kind of a joke, to be honest. The last thing the US needs is an even fatter government, but then again his voterbase is socialist, and explaining economy to socialists is kind of like trying to explain algebra to racoons. When questioned with Venezuela's current catastrophical state, he just quite literally just refused to answer.
I appreciate your answer more than you know, Dakk. Great analysis and content. Not so sure about the rapist thing, but the rest of your comment is what people need to know. Thanks.
The "rapist president" part was a bit of a crude tongue-in-cheek on my part, but yea, the rest is my serious opinion on the matter.
I think Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey are just two women who support the Bill Clinton Rapist allegation. They have personal experience.
I would like to believe that Clinton will win. However due to gay marriage and abortion issues, some Democrats may not agree with her and will instead vote for Trump. I have friends who normally do not vote, but they are strongly against gay marriage and abortion so they will vote for Trump this year. On the other hand, some Republicans do not like Trump (he can be racist and really blunt at times) and would vote for Clinton instead.
Just to clarify, Claire, Trump is on the record as a defender of the LBTG community and though he says he is pro-life, he has made other statements which lead me to believe that abortion is a non-issue for him..
I meant that the general idea is that Democrats are alright with gay marriage and abortions, and Republicans are against, but there are exceptions on both sides. Thank you for clarifying savvydating.
Hillary already won the election,what remains to be seen is if the tsunami will be big enough to take the senate and the house or just the senate.
I wouldn't say that Hillary has won, but I would say that Trump, as of late, seems to be self-imploding.
By my count, Trump will be the third worst blowout after Goldwater and McGovern.
We ALL know WHO is going to be the next President of the United States. No, it won't be Donald. Bernie is already out of the race. Yes, the winner will be Hillary. Despite the scandals & e-mails surrounding Hillary, she has been cleared of the Benghazi & e-mail scandals. Since President Obama endorsed her to be the Democratic candidate for President, this endorsement is analogous to an imprimatur absolving her of ALL wrongdoing. Hillary is the shoe-in for president for she has connections, is a political insider & game-player, & also have friends in VERY HIGH places. Need I say more.....
The election is rigged! Hilary won already. Finally someone who sees it.
Savvy, only #LyinTrump is ridiculous, in the true meaning of the word. HRC is ridiculous only in your mind.
Malorie - How is the election rigged? Your candidate didn't win the primary?
Alternative, This has nothing to do with right wing talking points. Facts are facts whether you choose to ignore them or not.
Also, it was not just "a few classified emails." She broke the law and got away with it. Hilary is corrupt---plain & sim
My Esoteric if you think the "people" actually choose whose president you're living in a rose colored world lol. They don't take our votes into even the slightest consideration.
I am frankly speaking there is hope full win of hillary clinton, however some astrologer says that trump is winner but according tome the chances of the trump'win is less than hiillary because trump is not a polite and global leader politician. he is a Businessman by default who are try to become a politician in america but still he may be beat hillary But I always support hillary it does not matter i can't vote in america
Most people in America don't know this but The Clintons' admiration worldwide is only comparable to Kennedy.
Rupesh, In the United States, the Clinton's are generally viewed as untrustworthy and (wrongly) "above the law," Nevertheless, their supporters don't care because they hate Republicans. Sounds simplistic, but it's pretty much the way it is, sadly.
Savvydating, it is like the Third Reich. People REFUSE to see what is going on. The Clintons are crooked to the core. Yes, the Clintons are untrustworthy & Hillary PROVES it more each day. There are none so blind so those who refuse to see.
I think the election is already over and Hilary won. It's been rigged all along.
I think the next United States President will be Hilary Clinton because America is too complacent with Democratic policy.
I think Hillary will win because more than half of our population is on her side. By Trump's inviting Russia to invade and hack a politician's email could also lead to Russia hacking into the president's email, as well as the military, etc. Trump is playing with fire and we will all get burned if he wins the election.
HRC has a smarter ground game. Trump is a rookie when it comes to organizing a political run. She is also outspending him in TV ads, which, sadly, is how most Americans decide how to vote. As for liking her? Only the most gullible actually "like" her
I guess I am gullible then, because I do like her, I like her politics, I like her fortitude, I like her caring, I like her sincerity, I like her fundamental honesty (don't laugh), and I trust her to do what is needed for America which Trump won't.
So, just how GULLIBLE is an AMERICAN Worker who votes for "Delusional Donald" who actually says to their FACEs that their WAGEs are too HIGH ??? That's what any RATIONAL Human would Define as "Mega-Gullible" ~
