If Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were the candidates for president of the United States which would you vote for if the election was today?

This poll has only two choices.
If you don't like either, or if you would vote for someone else, and would therefore stay home and not vote then don't vote in this PS poll.
You are free to start a poll too.

Every poster, American or not, may vote in this PS poll.
It's a sample of PS not a sample of America.

Though my favorite candidate would be someone who doesn't exist - a person who has the attributes of several different people. How about a strong, intelligent person who will wipe out Isis in one clean swoop, give me a booming economy, and single payer health care. :think:

Same here. This person has to also fix the education system and make the country safer from inside out (better justice system, some form of gun control, or whatever else that might be necessary to achieve this).

Hillary.

But I'm not really voting FOR anyone at this point, more like voting AGAINST what I consider to be the greater evil.

I really didn't feel that way in 2008.

I actually like thta mayor from Baltimore ok. Had he gotten more public traction I think he could have been higher in the polls. Thoigh I think he's just getting his name out there for a cabinet spot for a later run.

Hillary, simply because I would never vote for Trump. He is a sound-bite source for the media and that's about it in my opinion.

I think the funniest thing I heard regarding this whole thing with him running for president was said by Seth Meyers; 'I was surprised to hear Donald Trump is running for President as a Republican as I assumed that he was running for President as a joke'

While I DESPISE Hillary Clinton for the zeal with which she slimed those women who had the bad taste to boink her pig of a husband, if it comes down to Hillary vs. that disgusting pig Trump, Hillary will, unfortunately, get my vote.

me too. I've been calling it the lesser of two evils..and sometimes the evil of two lessers.

I wouldn't vote for either of them so I'll not vote in Kenny's poll.

I will vote for Hillary Clinton. I wanted to vote for her in 2008, and 2012. I hope that 2016 will be my chance to finally vote for her.

Sadly I have to agree. Right now it is more a vote against Trump than a vote for anyone else and depending on who is running I might just NOT vote this time. ;(

Ditto. I voted Clinton in the 2008 primary and then Obama in November. Trump scares the heck out of me.

My college age son who is super excited to be able to vote for the first time in 2016 keeps trying to convert me to Sanders. I'm just happy he is so passionate about politics and won't be voting for Trump. He plans on voting Sanders in the primary but would vote for Clinton in Nov. if she ends up being the democratic nominee.

He told me on his campus Sanders is far and beyond the most popular candidate.

... along the lines of voting for the lesser evil, I never get excited about any politician.
I'm positive I never will, or could.

Why?
1. The job is impossible to do well. There are too many conflicting demands. Every decisions pisses off many.
2. Power corrupts. IMO to attract the money to get to THAT level you are bought off, or are a scumbag who got rich by Trumping a zillion other people along the way.

Every four years I'm astonished by the hope and enthusiasm displayed by so many voters. :roll: :roll: :roll:
Invariably, four or eight years later the howls of, "Throw the bum out!" is deafening.

So, have a nice day. :kiss:

I heard a good joke the other day.

It turns out Trump was right!
China built a wall, and how many Mexicans do you find there:)

I did hear an interesting NPR story about polls- which are very much in the news today.
Turns out that a PS poll is probably way more accurate than any of the polls being quoted by politicians.....the majority of "polls" being quoted are nowhere near scientific.
98% of the people leaving Mcdonalds think meat is better than vegetables gets translated into a newspaper/internet headline: 98% of people think meat is better than veggies.....

It's interesting that some people find Trump scary (as do I), but they don't find Hill of Sanders scary :confused: Sanders and Hill both frighten the heck out of me - about as much as Trump does :errrr:

Maybe it's because we're not exactly sure what it is about each candidate, we're supposed to find frightening. And I'm totally serious when I say that. I didn't like Romney's politics, but he did not scare me, as in thinking he was an amoral loose canon whose private office is papered with Dr. Strangelove posters.

So, what exactly is so scary?

ksinger is, in my opinion, right. But I was scared by one candidate in recent years. Maybe some of you remember her. I cannot prove that she was actually more stupid than George W. Bush, and that she would, therefore, have have placed the country in greater jeopardy than he did. But he was a pretty scary guy to me. And I think she really may have been even more stupid and primitive. He, at least, came from a family with some members who were not simpletons.

I guess that I see things that are MAJOR red flags with Hill & Sanders (like I do with Trump) and it surprises me that some others don't. If you don't see the same things that I see, then who am I to tell you what you should see/hear/think/feel?
I think that Hill has a proven track record of lying (much like her husband) and risking our National security and Sanders is completely oblivious when it comes to being fiscally responsible. They may not be shooting their mouths of like Trump does, but that doesn't make them any less scary in my book.
