    I am genuinely so scared of Trump becoming president and the impact America having a bigoted evil man in power running the country. Not just for myself but for the rest of the world. And I can't do anything about it.

    Anyone else feel like this

    He will be unable to build any sort of national coalition that is necessary to win a General election. The majority of polls putting him against Sanders or Clinton have him losing. That trend will only increase as we get closer to November. This is of course assuming he becomes the Republican party nominee.. The GOP seems to be it's own worst enemy these days.

    Better to trust bookies can pollsters. Remember bookies take into account how polls tend to swing before an election. Polling is just dodgy sampling of the current mood of the population.


    Betfred has Clinton at 5/6 to win.

    Trump 5/2.



    So Clinton has a pretty great odds at the moment.

    Firstly what does it have to do with you who Americans choose to represent themselves

    Secondly why do you think this will impact YOU?

    When someone ascends to the Presidency of the only superpower of the world, it is a concern for not only the American who voted them in, but the poor African scraping a living in Zimbabwae, the working class private from Aldershot, the Chinese sweat shop worker, the drug cartel in Colombia and the despots of the Middle East.

    It does scare me a little. A future with Trump as president would result in the rise of the NWO :lol:

    Luckily, although he seems to be winning the vote to represent his 'party' (or however it works) it doesn't look like there's a high chance of him actually winning the presidential election. Fortunately it seems that a large proportion of Americans still have their heads screwed on straight...

    It depends. It could either be positive for the UK or a resounding negative.

    In the positive light it could finally end the cold war era "Special relationship" the UK has with the US allowing us to become closer with our geographic neighbours and reduce the influence that the USA has over Europe.

    In a negative light America could use its leverage with our tory government to drag us into some serious ****.

    I want Trump to win. It'd make a great positive change in politics.

    You think he's an evil man because he wants to stop Muslim immigration? LOL

    Oh noes Trumps the new Hitler!

    The stupidity of people is amazing. He's a nice billionaire and done plenty of great things to help people out. Heart of gold compared to some other rich out there.

    She's one of those loons that thinks having a border makes you a bigot. It only applies to largely White Western nations lets be honest about this.

    Trump's actually more anti-war than the likes of Hillary Clinton.

    He wants to make peace with Russia while many of the others (except Sanders I think) only seeks to stir up more conflict.

    He's called out Turkey for being on the side of ISIS..

    Critical of the Iraq war from the beginning. He said it would destabilize the Middle East and he was right.

    No.

    If they don't elect Bernie sanders, then America deserves Trump.

    Hilary, and the rest are just the establishment big business and **** the poor candidates. I'd rather Trump than Clinton or the other Republican candidates, because at least Trump doesn't lie. He says what he thinks.

    Sanders (then Trump) or nothing.

    The liberal and conservative establishment are ******** themselves, and I'm loving it.

    I'd (naturally) prefer a conservative candidate, and I must say that Rand Paul is by far the most sensible and pragmatic option that the USA have. Bernie Sanders is a socialist lefty but is still their second best option after Rand Paul.

    They're all the same imo. All talk **** and represent corporations and big business, rather than real capitalism or the real working people. They all lie and they don't represent anyone but money.

    I hope Sanders or Trump wins.

    You wanna bet, just listen to Rand Paul talk for 5 minutes. There's a reason he's not got the corporate funding the others and Trump have got.

    I have listened to him, I've even listened to that Democratic nobody Martin O'Malley.They all sound the same, talk the same and won't actually change anything. They don't represent anyone, other than their financial backers.
