Has the American 2016 presidential race regressed to high school, even junior high school
level histrionics? What happened to the intelligent presidential campaigns of yesteryear? Why has this current presidential race got to get.....SO PERSONAL, even resorting to ad hominem attacks, even verbal mudslinging unworthy of mature, educated adults? Has the American 2016 presidential race devolved into a gladiatorial circus of sorts?
You are talking about the GOP primary and Trump. More than one person has said that Trump is unqualified and unfit to be president. And he is.
Things have been deteriorating for a long time, much in part from liberals branding themselves as peace, love, smart, tolerant - and demonizing those who disagree as bad, hate, stupid, irrational, intolerant.
It denies the other side legitimacy of their position while simultaneously upholding liberals as everything good. But reflexively namecalling the other side when they speak hurts dialogue and the ability to even have a dialogue.
And now the authoritarian left is physically attacking those who express contrary views (because their so called hate speech is an emotional attack on the SJW pure self, so they can respond by tearing up signs and assaulting people). It is hard to have a civil debate with someone who says debating them is hate, they can passively aggressively shove you for ten minutes without consequence but the moment you push back they scream you attacked them and report it - or as happened with Milo Yianapolis, Ben Shapiro and other conservative personalities on stage and in public, attacked physically on stage with blows after being drowned out by chanting and air horns for minutes.
But it is the conservatives who get called intolerant when liberals enter private gatherings of conservatives to silence them, who attack Trump supporters in San Jose and say it is fighting intolerance, the conservatives who are blamed when liberals riot to shut down conservative events.

How Do You Think Donald Trump Will Exit The Presidential Race?I have to wonder with Donald Trump slipping in the polls, if he is going to stay in the race for the Republican nomination to run for President? Not sure if his ego will allow him to be in 2nd place and eventually lose. If he...

Will Trump’s hubris not allow him to accept defeat in the Presidential race?I keep hearing Trump say "If I don't win then the system is rigged." Is it rigged only if he does not win?

Has the American Media turn the Presidential race into a reality show?I was flipping back and forth between fox and NBC. In every show they talk about the polls. who is on top and who is out. Are the polls influencing how people will vote? The debates are already a joke with no real substance. We...

Does is scare anyone else that Donald Trump is still in the presidential race?Surprisingly, to me at least, he is still competitive in the presidential race. I have a hard time wanting to follow an individual that was featured on wrestling shows, reality TV, etc. He is certainly a media magnet...

I started this as a question but perhaps it's better suited for a forum instead. Speculation has begun Obama will possibly drop from the 2012 presidential race, paving the way for Hillary Clinton to step in and "save" the Dems from a royal butt kicking. Do you think this is possible or...
