    Clinton is trustworthy , reliable etc. trump is all about himself , narcissistic ego maniac ; am thinking though he's playing the bad canidiate as he's really pinnind on running again the next time around to pretend the has changed attitude to nice caring guy.

    The thing is, a lot of Yanks might just do the same thing and he ends up winning 'just for the entertainment'

  • I am really shocked at how many would vote for Clinton! She would be as bad a choice as Trump, she's a lying scheming untrustworthy !!!!!.

    Shocking how many believe our media - get real people, start watching Russia Today for news and do not read our papers and believe them please,

    This chart provides an idea where these candidates stand.

    Bernie Saunders who like Jeremy Corbyn in the UK are the only ones who offer a real alternative to the Big Business friendly, neo-liberal candidate monopoly on offer. Sanders is the first left of centre choice the Americans have ever had, at least in living memory, or possibly since Franklin D Roosevelt.

    The media know that and will demonise them to placate their paymasters. Clinton is just another right wing neo-liberal whose politically similar to Blair. That's why she got on so well with the Blairite David Miliband when he was foreign secretary. I think Trump should be off the chart here, the ultimate nutjob candidate.

    RT wouldn't be a bad channel if it wasn't for the fact they support another nutjob, Putin! At least they provide some real questions for the UK government which the Beeb should be offering.
