    Have me 2 years older, have me be a US citizen, hell, even threaten me of fining if I don't vote, there's no possible way I'm voting for either Hillary nor Trump. Even if I could or had to vote, I would refuse in this case to vote. The madness has gone way too far.

    Honestly, Sanders seems like the only good candidate, but as far as I'm aware, he's most likely not getting in the final elections.

    Voting only matters if the system isn't rigged...

    I've already accepted the fact that Bubba and Hussein have made sure that everything is going to be fine.

    Abstaining.

    Trump and Hillary... the worst candidates in a very long time. What a shame they can't both lose.

    Good, glad you've accepted it. And we're taking the Senate too. I hope President Clinton nominates a Scalia replacement that will make Republicans feel like the turds they are for having blocked Merrick Garland. Time to start cracking some skulls. :)

    Take it easy there, Hillary just barely beat an old white socialist in the most capitalistic country in the world. If she doesn't end up in prison before this election is over, I fear for her health after having to deal with Trump till November. Even if Trump doesn't win, this is going to be the nastiest political season anyone on the face of the earth has ever seen.

    1. Hillary beat Bernie by quite a few popular votes. She beat him fair and square. I voted for Bernie today but even I can admit that.

    2. Do you really think she's remotely intimidated by Trump? She's been slandered by the right for decades. She has nerves of steel.

    Shes been "slandered" by politicians on the right, although I am sure whatever they have said isn't even close to what she has actually done (which is why she should be in prison), Trump isn't a politician and he isn't afraid to go nuclear. He even nukes his own campaign every other month or so just for fun. In a one on one debate she is going to fold over.

    You're clearly in your own universe. You have a buffoon with zero political experience and no policy plans whatsoever debating an experienced politician who behaves like an adult. She's going to school him like a little boy on that debate stage. Outside the right wing echo chamber, Trump's idiocy and narcissism don't quite have the same charm. He'll learn that soon enough.

    These debates aren't going to be a show for the adults, this is going to be 5 star entertainment for the masses, and Trump is going to be the center piece. I don't think you get it yet, but you will soon. This is going into the gutter/muddiest road possible and its going to go there quick. These aren't going to be the academic debates of yesteryear.

    I guess by that logic, Obama just barely beat Hillary in 2008.

    I'd say it already has been pretty nasty. Although if you look through history, there were some pretty wild and ugly races in the 1800's too.

    I'll be 18 in time to vote this November and it's unfortunate that this, my first presidential vote, will be in such a disappointing election. You know, given how unlikable Trump and Clinton are, it surprises me that they will get the nominations. If they're so unlikable, why did so many people vote for them? Someone likes them. But it doesn't seem to be anyone I know or most people I come across online. The silent majority likes them, I guess.

    I'll be voting for Hillary because she most closely matches my own views and I think a Trump presidency would be a disaster (though not as apocalyptic as some make it seem). If I could've voted in this primary, I would've voted for Sanders, though given I'm in California, it would've been too late for it to have made a difference.

    I dunno about that. Trump is far, FAR from being your run of the mill politician. He's unpredictable, and more than willing to punch below the belt any chance he gets. But Hillary is mean, weathered, having spent the last 20 odd years fighting through a constant barrage of unfriendly fire. We're talking about a woman who was grilled for 8-9 hours in a hostile Republican lead deposition, and came out the other side of it looking better than she went in.

    If there's one thing I agree with you on, it's...

    Yeah, things are gonna get bloody.

    ^ I don't know if I'd say "face of the earth". In other countries, riots, coups, massacres, and civil war arise from elections. I doubt it will go too far. Though we have already seen some riots...

    Well, in a politics as bloodsport sorta way. I doubt very seriously we'll see it stoop to undercover agents shooting ricin pellets at people from guns disguised as umbrellas.

    It's comments like this that make absolutely no sense.

    I get it, you hate Hillary but just to try and stop her becoming president you'll either vote for the most left wing or the most fascist candidate in living memory. It seems you have no idea what you actually want for America and are willing to sell your soul for no good reason.

    I could understand Sanders or Clinton, or, sanders or nobody but sanders or Trump is nonsensical.

    A Trump vote and presidency will in essence kill both the Republican and Democratic parties as we know them today and that's no an inherently bad thing.

    A vote for Trump is not an endorsement of him so much a expressing disdain for the way thing are.

    Either Hillary or Gary Johnson, I haven't made up my mind yet and those are the only two non Trump options likely to be on my state's ballot. I'll probably go for Johnson since I don't live in a swing state, and I generally dislike Hillary.

    Trump. Can't wait for the first debate. Hillary is clearly scared of the public, she won't even host a press conference, instead she goes on friendly news shows only. Trump on the other hand will go on shows that are hostile to him.

    Hillary. We can't have the Republicans appoint the next 2-4 Supreme Court justices.

    I'd vote Hillary if I was American. Would have far preferred to Bernie though.
