    It looks likely that the US election will be Hilary Clinton vs. Donald Trump so do you think he will be the next US President

    Can I pick neither of those. My personal guess is Sanders will win the democratic nomination and either Rubio or Carson for the Republican nomination

    No. He's unlikely to get the nomination, even if he does he'd be very unlikely to win the general.

    Clinton would beat Trump.

    Money speaks though and I still think that it will end up being Clinton vs Bush with a close result.

    I actually think Trump has a chance. Clinton's politics sound boring, uninspiring and very tired. Trump for all his flaws comes across as sensational, speaking on behalf of a lot of people and I guess when you have that kind of money and no fear of losing a job etc. you can say what you want. The man's popularity is down to his media/cult personality status. He knows how to communicate to the masses and come across as authoritative, inspiring, entertaining, charismatic etc. I just worry for someone like Clinton and the baggage she carries, Trump despite being a bum will show her up completely.

    Furthermore whilst he was (imo) a great president, much like Blair and Bush, Clinton had his haters and many negatives hung over him and I fear these will somehow cast a shadow over Hillary Clinton should she get the nomination. It's something she can't escape and could ultimately cost her much how Jeb Bush might suffering as a result of his brother and father.

    Sanders though not a huge fan of his policies is imo the best placed candidate to beat Trump or indeed the Republicans. Biden would have been shoe-in but sadly and understandably, he will never get that opportunity.

    Opinion polls very much insinuate that the POTUS race will boil down to Sanders vs Trump. It's sad that economic politics in the US have come down to choosing one extreme or the other.

    He consistently loses in polls showing who voters think the primary winner will be. He won't get the nomination.

    Are you kidding me, he is leading as the republicians favourite in every poll except in one state where ben carson comes first.
    I believe he has a very strong chance of becoming the republican nominee but i dont think he can win the presidency.

    Hillary needs to go aswell

    Considering that Trump boasts not being bought by pacts like others, he is very friendly with Sheldon Adelson..

    Israel first

    He gives largely White Conservative Americans false hope but I don't believe he'll deliver on any of his promises


    Prepare for disappointment that is all I have to say

    I am hoping though that he isn't as easily influenced as Obama. He seemed to want peace with Russia and supported Russia taking out ISIS while Obama's administration is against that...

    I think I'll just write in Biden if I'm still in the US during elections (meaning I don't go to university in the UK), because Biden is a real person, unlike Darth Vader (who has been written in many times) and Sauron (who isn't really that bad as the leader of a nation if you overlook his moral standards). If I go to university in the UK and Donald Trump becomes president (or Hilary Clinton) and it messes with my ability to go to university in the UK: Hello, my dear British friends. Anyone want to help me figure out how become a British citizen?

    Although I'm an American... I somewhat agree. If the American public knew you could write in candidates, they'd probably write in some ridiculous celebrity. (this was meant to be sarcastic, though there is some true opinion behind it)

    I think Sanders will win.

    This is what propaganda looks like.
