  1. Some may think it's too early for this thread, but a lot of people are already talking about it, based on strong trends in the primaries and convention delegate totals.

    If they are the 2 choices a bunch of people aren't gonna vote...

    I wouldn't vote for either of those clowns, even if I thought voting actually mattered.

    Clinton over Trump any day of the week.

    I was actually thinking about a Trump presidency earlier today. I'm thinking he'd get not only impeached but removed from office before his term ends.

    The main stream Republicans don't like him so he'll hardly have their support. The Democrats realize he's an idiot so they'll want him to go. His big mouth will probably get him in trouble on both the international and domestic scene and he's bound to make some tactical error involving our military somewhere. Not to mention the Evangelicals seeing his wife parading around the White House.

    At least Hillary has a brain, if you remember the Republicans were always saying she was the real power in the White House when Bill was Pres.

    Whenever we get only two choices like those, it makes me very glad America doesn't prosecute citizens for not voting. It happens in some countries ya know.

    yep, here they only persecute. "you didn't vote for one shit candidate over the other shit candidate, so it is completely your fault that we ended up with a shit president!"

    I find it unsettling how many Americans don't understand the import of their voting. Each seems to vote based on a narrow reason where he adjudged his preference to have excelled. If that candidate wins, you get the whole package. Maybe one day you will make a mistake big enough to attract a nuclear attack on your country and the message will be better understood. If you do not vote, it's the same effect. It was Ralph Nader that put W in the White House and you only got 9/11 and you're wailing. If people were more concerned with world affairs in the US, rather than punishing Gore for his pro-climate change responsibility, Bush would not have been president and the world would have been saved a great deal of Islamic barbarity. You think no difference between Trump and Hillary? Or even worse you think Trump is actually a character that should be in the White House and hold the Nuclear "biscuit"? GOOD LUCK with what will come next.

    I'm not advocating forced voting or anything, but if all Americans were required to vote in ALL elections corruption might be prevented at a lowly, local level and therefore prevent corruption and the false choice between the two evils at the top.

    I mean, obviously that wouldn't work now because we've already devolved into full blown idiocracy, but maybe if it was instituted a hundred or so years ago...

    Since I'm not an American obviously it won't affect me as much, but I'd have to agree 100%.

    I'm not so sure that's true. People who voted for Nader were not necessarily going to vote Gore if Nader had not been in the race.

    Nader can be blamed for promoting the idea that there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between Bush and Gore. There was obviously a huge difference, especially with the benefit of hindsight.

    Can't blame americans for not seeing the point anymore if these really were the only 2 choices. Although I guess if I were an american voter I would still use my vote I would hate it to spend it on either of these 2. I feel I would not even care that Clinton would probably be a slightly better choice: it is just the lack of other serious options.

    I would not vote on the best of these 2, I would stick to my principles and vote on a loser, but at least they wouldn't be a loser because of me.

    I'd vote Sanders for the nomination, but it looks like it's not going his way, and given the stark choice between bad and very bad, would vote bad (Clinton).

    Are all other options gone after the nomination or something? Why does people feel like narrowing it down so much? Is the system over there to limit it down to one candidate per party in the end and so, as it is in reality a 2 party system, leaves the people with only 2 choices of which it is likely none represent them? Sorry if this is a basic understanding over there and I'm asking a dumb question but if it is not so, why not stick to your guns and go with the most suitable and best representative for you? Not asked only to BBB, but americans as well :) Please clarify this for me!?
