Which presidential candidate would you vote for?

  • Hillary Clinton – 50%
  • Donald Trump – 46%

Trump continues to sink in all of his sexual scandals. Several women came forward this week, accusing the billionaire of groping and kissing them without their permission. Of course, at the previous debate, Trump made it clear that he had never engaged in such behavior. In order to defend himself, Trump has been forced to rely on shady individuals like Anthony Gilberthorpe, who used to supply underage boys to British politicians for their sex parties.

Sadly, none of this is a joke and this is the circus that Trump’s campaign has become. If Trump wants to pick it up in the polls, he needs to convince voters that he can offer them some type of substantive policy. As it stands, his talking points are ineffective and most voters are more focused on his scandals than on what he has to offer them as their future president.

Clinton is completely in the driver’s seat at the moment. None of her scandals are in the spotlight. If any other candidate were running against her, she would be the focal point of the election, given her immense political baggage. However, Trump has managed to steal the spotlight for himself and it seems unlikely that this will change before Nov. 8.
