    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,

    RT is essentially the Russian state broadcaster, if they said it was raining I'd still take my umbrella down and check, they're about as unbiased as Fox news.

    Clinton has her skeletons (the whole email server debacle) but Sanders can be painted as a communist by the 60s/70s red scare generation and will be destroyed by the right leaning media harming his chances of support from moderates. Trump is a liability and shows the Republicans still haven't learnt since 2008 by supporting someone who is going to alienate a huge chunk of the US voting public - until they realise the majority of Americans don't want a bible-bashing anti-gay anti-women anti-everyone not a rich white man then they don't have a chance if the Democrats pick a reasonable mainstream candidate - their ranting about Scalia and talking of blocking anyone Obama picks before he was even in the ground shows all they care about

    I don't think most Britains have seen much of the negative coverage regarding Clinton. Just google "Hilary Clinton scandal". It might take a while to buffer. She isn't at all trustworthy but this time round she's just too powerful for any democrat to challenge her. Obama was the perfect Democrat candidate at that time and even he only scraped past her by the votes of unelected "superdelegates". This time Clinton made sure she had those votes in the bag.
  • I was looking for a choice that said "Anything but Trump, please!"
    I don't know much about the other candidates, but I know that voting in that maniac as the most powerful man in the world would be a Very Bad Thing(TM) :eek:
  • Incidentally, even Hillary is seen as being more religious than Trump

    He’s been reported to have been a Catholic, a member of the Dutch Reformed Church, a Presbyterian and he married his third wife in an Episcopalian church. I think he'll say anything to get a vote!

    There's no "even more" there. I think polls have shown that it's largely non church-going Christians who are voting for Trump because he's never had a religion of any substance. Christian commentators I have heard have pointed out that he has made a fortune from the likes of casinos.

    Well, this poll seems to prove sexism exists.

    The Clinton e-mail 'scandal' is a non issue. Even republicans are starting to change tack on that. Sanders isn't electable in a GE. The republicans have a bunch of crazies along with John Kasich and Ben Carson who don't even figure in the race.

    Bookmakers are pretty confident it will be Hillsry and I am too.

    Nonsense. She's already been proved to have lied about sending no classified emails, proving that she put US security at risk. Even news stories from the past few days show that the scandal hasn't blown over.

    Her predecessors had done the same thing, they are republicans, they have supported her.

    Republican congress members admitted to running this issue as a political issue to darken her name. Let's face it, what she did probably saved the e-mauls from being leaked by Edward Snowden. The government servers he had access to were clearly very secure.

    It's a non issue.

    Clinton has been involved in many more scandals than the recent email shenanigans. Google Travelgate, Whitewater, Filegate, Pardongate, the missing billing records from the Rose Law Firm and the death of Vince Foster.

    I too am amazed at the high polling for Clinton who is being gifted the presidency by her superdelegates and Trump (possibly the only candidate worse than Clinton) in opposition.
