    Donald Trump
    First, I'll run down the list:

    Bernie Sanders: He has great progressive ideas and millennials seem to gravitate towards him.(Me included, I especially like the idea of making campaigns federally funded.) Unfortunately, he won't get anything done if he goes through Congress since most of his ideas oppose Super PACS and campaign contributors. No one in the establishment seems to support him which makes me think he is running for the people and not the politicians. The polls purposely showing him losing by a landslide to Clinton. However, when counting delegates that voted, Sanders is only behind about 100 delegates. The media unfairly makes it seem he is losing by a lot though. In my opinion he wants to run a morally sound campaign and tries not to bribe delegates.

    Hillary Clinton: She seems to just give empty promises and false statements about helping the middle class. Things like the Benghazi and email scandal gives the impression that she is sloppy at covering her tracks and spews lies from her mouth. Overall, in my opinion, even if hell froze over, I still would not vote for her. Unfortunately, I think through bribery, she will win the democratic nominee.

    Donald Trump: He has tapped into something special with regards to the anger of voters. Again, I think he just has empty promises but if it came down to Trump vs. Hillary, I would say, Trump. Now Trumps vs. Sanders, Sanders has my vote hands down. Now, the republican GOP will go to the convention where Trump will win the nominee. However, establishment republicans would absolutely hate that idea of Trump winning the Presidency. That is why some establishment Republicans are secretly backing Clinton. Clinton is part of the establishment and they would rather have a democratic establishment candidate as President that a Republican Trump (Who has no allegiance to the establishment). I am looking at you Mitt Romney!

    Ted Cruz: His campaign is funded by companies (Boeing, Lockheed Martin) that have military contracts with the USGOV. As much as I hate to say it, most likely, Ted Cruz would find a way for us to go to war (Maybe Syria) so these companies could sell stuff to the US military and gain profits. When someone goes to war, there is a company always turning a profit on it. (I don't mean to talk ill on our Armed Forces, they are the bravest men I have ever met, but I hate to see our soldiers, including my friends, go to war because companies like Boeing need to make money.) Okay that aside, I think the Republican GOP will head to the convention where, Cruz's campaign will lose to Trumps.

    Marco Rubio: The only reason Rubio is staying in the race is to claim a top spot in Cruz 's or Trump's ticket, like VP. As of today, he has won 2 or 3 states and is way behind. He is going to drag it out and try to secure a spot in either campaign in the convention.

    Bernie
     He seems to have a lot of people believing they will get something for free. Nothing is free, and he can claim to fund his freebies by taxing the rich. Not only would taxing the rich as much as he wants to be a train wreck for job creation, but as long as there is lobbyists in Washington the rich will have loop holes to dodge taxes leaving the so called freebies either payed by the middle class or national debt. Keeps preaching fiscal equality, I was raised you work your tail off to get what you want.. If everything was equal there would be no reward for hard work or work at all. Loves open boarders and the welfare system. Would love for Bernie to show me 1 nation that not only sustains itslelf, but grew under socialism with open boarders and a welfare state.I give the man credit for being somewhat honest. Economy will surely crash if he got all his wishes.

    Hillary
    She should have been locked up and tortured long ago..

    Trump
    What a train wreck. Guy keeps saying Obama care needs to be repealed and replaced. Problem is he believes in single payer also so I guess he thinks Trump care will be different.  Seems to think everything he touches turns to gold when often it turns to crud. Would for sure make a horrid president and I can see riots in the streets already. I don't believe his immigration plan for a second.  Man's a hypocrite because he talks all tough on immigration but brings in foreign workers under visas apposed to hiring Americans. 

    Cruz
    Guy is to slick for my taste. Has something up his sleeve and it stinks.. looks good and says the right things but my gut says bad news.. Just maybe not as bad as some others..

    Rubio
    This guy is a total fake. Lied his tail off to get to senate and done everything he said he wouldnt. Dude has no clue that open borders not only effects our economy but also our safety. If this cat gets in look for more companies packing up and leaving the USA and foreigners gobbling up what's left of employment or government freebies..

    I dont want none of them. Pretty sad yet another election cycle we are once again forced to vote for the less evil..

    Hillary Clinton
    It's a rogues gallery, none of them deserve the office, but whoever gets elected won't be able to get anything passed through congress anyway.

    Hillary Clinton
    Don't plan on voting for Hillary but the way things are going right now my money's on her to win it.  Republicans are blowing it again it seems but whoever they put up there will probably get my vote, if they are in the race now.  If they drop someone in at convention though, all bets off.  

    Haven't voted for a Dem since Jimmy Carter, I was young, dumb and full of "****".  But the Kool-Aid tasted sooo good back then.

    Thank you.

    Meanwhile, I wish Kasich would make the polls, I guess being the only viable choice means no media attention.

    doesn't matter who we vote for, it's what the corporate $$ votes for that will be the 'decider'. I think it's going to elect Clinton or Cruz. Problem for them is that most folks don't like or trust the former and the latter is coming across as too morally biased to respect the law of the land.

    Donald Trump
    Whomever is the GOP nominee will receive my vote.

    Bernie - self described socialist.  Do we want to be like Europe?  
    Hillary - a Saul Alinsky protoge and is followed by a career of troubling events beginning with Watergate all the way to her email scandal.

    Ted Cruz
    I don't like any of them.  Not one.  Liked Cruz a while back but seems a little too slick.  It may just be the way the media edits video, but still.  Sanders is a commie, plain and simple... taking from one person to give to another is theft, running our government in that manner is communism.  Hillary is a career criminal and will sell the white house to the chinese as fast, if not faster, than her husband did.  I think a Cruz/Rubio ticket is probably the safest bet for the country.  As said by kswildcat, the lesser of two evils...

    Trump is a whole 'nother ball game.  My gut tells me Trump is working for the Democrats.  This situation screams of the Ross Perot incident several years ago.  It's going to come down to Trump vs. Hillary and then trump is either going to bail or intentionally piss of his base and send them over to Hillary's camp out of spite.  Come September or October, once he's locked the Republican side up tight and it's too late, he's gonna derail the whole thing and leave it for Hillary by default.

    It's a shame there are no real Americans running for office anymore.  This shiite of commies on the left and establishment types on the right is getting old.

    None of the above please. I would vote for @Puff_dougie for president. Seems like the guy never gets upset and always an even keel. @DanielZReyes for vice president because he has great taste in socks and cigars, and everyone fears his exacto knIfe! @peter4jc would have to be up there somewhere because he has great verbage!!

    Peter would make a good Secretary of State because of the verbage but the other qualification (being a pathological liar) isn't one of his traits....   B)

    I believe if it comes to republicans forcing someone in thru convention of states this country will see an up rising like never before. Will be very ugly..

    I don't believe most of this country cares enough to uprise. As a people if we did things wouldn't have got to where they are now.

    The anti cop rhetoric spewed by Sanders is sickening all in an effort to gain votes. He makes me sick and should consider committing suicide. On top of that he is a socialist. Enough said. You want something work for it.
