Well all of the Republicans are insane except for Kasich (which means he has no chance to be nominated) so I will be voting for either Clinton or Sanders.

The Trump phenomenon is absolutely disgusting. You have millions of people who now feel empowered to openly express xenophobia and religious bigotry.

Also the last GOP debate sounded more like a kindergarten classroom than a serious discussion among rational adults vying for the most powerful job in the world.

I can't stand wackjob nutbaggery. I've been on both sides of the ideological realm & have seen it issue forth from both sides historically speaking in my lifetime. However, at this time, it's pretty evident when you watch the debates as to which party has the adults in the debate room & which party offers a clown car or circus event. If I hadn't already left the Republican Party, I would certainly have to do so now.
Because of the changing demographic situation in the state, Georgia will slowly move on into the "Purple state" column before long & who knows where it will go from there. But as for the 2016 election, it's overall voting patterns will still be firmly anchor it as being a "red" state both in the local & national races.
You're wrong. Even though Sanders and Clinton seem like a clown car, Trump and Cruz can get pretty silly too.

Not nearly as terrifying as Hillary. Christ, she lies worse than Nixon and Johnson combined....if that's possible....

Yea, if Hillary is nominated it is a guaranteed Republican in the white house. She is polling horribly with independents.

That's because we're still in a primary and she has a challenger. Her poll numbers mean nothing until she gets the nomination. Even then, they will probably still mean nothing.

Trump has a ceiling in the GOP so do you really think that he'll get independents in the Fall? Not many.

The saddest part is that she and Bernie are the only two Democrats running. Has the Democrat party run out of gas? I have to believe they have more and could have fielded at least 5....Webb was inside left and the right could have worked with him....Bernie has emotion and conviction in his message which surprised me.


What most on the left haven't figured out is that the right wants quite a bit of change....too. They don't like seeing college grads struggling to pay back debt on an education that can't produce a job. It's shameful. Top that off with our 19 trillion in debt (was roughly 9 trillion when Obama took office 7 years ago) and a US morale that hasn't been this low since Watergate.


The sides aren't so far apart in some beliefs as both sides might have one believe. It's just sad to see that after all these decades...centuries, Hillary is the front runner of the Democratic party. She's been caught lying so many times for so many years it's hard to believe she is still around. And as much as the left would point fingers at the right for "hanging on to their guns and religion", a sadder statement could be said that the left is hanging on to their handouts and social programs.....both are neither completely true.


In my humble opinion, I would rather see an avowed Socialist, Bernie, win than an avowed liar and cheat named Hillary Clinton win. And I am an avowed Republican that does not necessary agree with Bernie but, I respect him for sticking to his guns. At least he can earn some respect through his convictions. And I would bet you many, many Republicans believe like I do. While they may not vote for Bernie, they simply can NOT stand Hillary or Bill any longer. Bernie, the avowed Socialist...is a better choice for America??? I believe and 10 years ago there is no way on this earth I could have believed that. And yet.....here comes Hillary......


They/she needs to go and the Democrat party needs to do better. Bernie is a good start. At least he BELIEVES in helping others....Hillary only believes in helping herself. When she is done she will roam the lecture circuit, parades, books, barb-b-ques, anything for a buck. Funny coming from the "anti-capitalist" named Hillary. I find her despicable and not worthy of being a commander in chief of the armed forces. If I were in I would resign. I can only hope other military members will do the same. No blood needs to be shed for any reason under her. She's a national disgrace. Putin will have a field day with her as will the middle east.


What does THAT tell you about Hillary?

All of this "Hillary is a liar" rhetoric... What has she been proven to have lied about? Sounds like some Trump-Talk to me.
