who are you going to vote for and why!
also who do you think will win?
GETMAD

I'm Bernie all the way!

Why?
- He sticks to his beliefs
- He fights for the middle class
- He fights the system!

Primaries? Probably Bernie. Actual election? Probably Clinton.

It's not possible for Bernie to win the primary and Clinton to win the general election they are both running for the democratic nomination...

I thought this was a "Who are you going to vote for?" thread and not a "Who do you think is going to win?" thread.

As for why:

- Sanders in the primary to promote political integrity and hopefully move Hillary a bit further left

- Clinton in the general election because I'm not going to be voting for the Republican candidate; I'm also assuming that Sanders is going to lose the primary (and am willing to bet money on this if any Sanders supporters want to dispute me here).

I dont want to vote this election because everybody is sucky either way.

Although Im more right than left, I admire Sanders for taking a big step and not accepting big company endorsements. Definitely going against the norm and doing so takes balls.

I can't see Bernie winning the primary unless Hilary gets a lot more flak on the email server issue.

I won't bother with who I will vote for since I don't feel like debating political views on here.

"I dont want to vote this election because everybody is sucky either way."

I never liked that stance. Not voting helps nothing. It only makes it more likely for a vocal minority to get their way. Even if you think the candidates all suck, there have to be degrees to suckyness. They do actually have differing views on some things.

I would cast my vote for Carson, that one republican chick whose name escapes me, Kasich or Sanders. I like the first two because of what they say on internal matters. Kasich I like because of what his stance is on ISIS.

I think Clinton, Trump, and Carson have a chance to win. But, Clinton is a non-trustworthy female dog, Trump, though I do admire his bluntness and saying what he wants, I think he may be too blunt.

The real winning ticket for the Republican party is Carson and the chick.

Fiorina, I bet.

You could also vote for Deez Nuts, who's polling on par with Marco Rubio (and better than Fiorina) in NC right now.

if you don't like republicans or democrats spend an hour researching 3rd party candidates. there's always a ton of people with all kinds of platforms running for president. i vote 3rd party and i tell everyone i know that i do, and that voting for the lesser of two evils is defeatist and bad for democracy.

having said that, i like bernie sanders best, if only because very few 3rd party candidates have declared this early.

Clintn or Bernie, I know most of my family is going Clinton.


Basically there is no real good choice this election, and there probably wont be for another 8 years. Simple enough (Clinton two terms)

The survey finds Trump with the support of 24% of Republican registered voters. His nearest competitor, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, stands 11 points behind at 13%. Just behind Bush, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has 9%, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker 8%, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul 6%, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former tech CEO Carly Fiorina and Ohio Gov. John Kasich all land at 5%, with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee rounding out the top 10 at 4%.

In my opinion:

Sanders > Trump > Clinton > Bush

I'd also like to give a special shoutout to Genghis.

Voting doesn't matter. Your vote is more like a suggestion to the ruling elite.

I believe that the voting system is rigged. A better system would include multiple presidents, like a council of 4-5 political ideologies for each president. States and districts are easy to gerrymander, also consider that you can win the general election with 22% of the people wanting you in office.

My solution:

Alternative vote, Google it, It is late for me :)

It's an unsolvable problem - to unrig the vote. As long as the American ruling elite are greedy and exploiting, and America is strong enough to do their will, it will never be unrigged. This is a problem in many countries, more the powerful ones than the less.

That answer is an overreaction to a small problem that will highly lower living standard and most likely replace current elite set with new elite set, if not immediately, then in 5-10 years.

Many of my favorite candidates so far are sadly down the list. I'd easily be convinced to vote for someone like Marco Rubio or Ben Carson. Plus, I think it would be smart for the Republicans to field one of these two because stealing away some minority voters is the one thing the GOP needs the most next election.

On the Democrat side, Sanders is 10X better the Clinton. I actually give credit to Sanders for restoring my faith in the Democrat party. I had lost almost all respect for them over the past few years.

Trump is a double-edged sword. Part of me likes him just for the fact that he says whatever he's thinking and isn't afraid to spit in the face of political correctness. However, he's a bit too blunt at times and I'm almost terrified about how diplomatic relations would be under him.

The Republicans would definitely be better with someone else in front. Although,if they choose someone else Trump will likely run as an independent, thus stealing away mostly Republican votes, and completely destroy any chances the GOP has of winning the election. So unless Trump has a change of heart it's likely to be an easy win for whichever Democrat is chosen.

Not really, all that needs to happen for Trump to win is the oth GOp candindates to drop out, Carson or Rubio to become his VP, and Hillary Clinton to get much more shit about the emails, pushing some more people to vote for Bernie Sanders and splitting the democrats votes.

as for me, i just like carson, trump, and sanders
