I would have voted if you had a choice that said that I believe Clinton is the most qualified candidate running, and/or conversely, that Trump is the least. The juvenile way you worded the poll makes it impossible for me to vote in it.

The biggest negative Hillary has going for her is that the GOP, if they have any power left at all, will use it to obstruct her like they did Obama.

In otherwords, a vote for Hillary is a vote for gridlock at the hands of her opponents who put party before country (again).

She has many negatives. That this is the biggest one speaks volumes about the GOP and their scorched earth agenda.

I'm not so sure about that. I think vulgarity is the ideal way to describe our choices this election.

I couldn't agree more If the patriots of the American Revolution decided it was unlikely that we could break free of the monarchy, we'd be singing God Save The Queen today instead of the Star Spangled Banner.

Agreed, they're both an embarrassment. But there's a bigger embarrassment to whom both pander -- the "swing voter" of limited education and short sight, who is still so stupid as to enter a voting booth believing that the excessive power of the state can benefit him/her at someone else's expense, rather than what (s)he has to lose as that power becomes increasingly concentrated and bureaucratized.

We desperately need basic educational and intellectual qualifications in order to vote. To handle this issue fairly, I'm willing to allow service in the military, or Peace Corps, etc. as an automatic qualifier, or enrollment in a basic "civics" course -- just as some states now require a safety course as a condition for hunting licenses for teenagers.

Right along with MOST polls that are published. Almost impossible to find a poll nowadays that isn't contrived to come to a predetermined conclusion.

Well, per her own statements a vote for her is a vote for basically the U.N. to rule the U.S.. "One World, Open Borders".

They are both awful, but they are the candidates we deserve.

Your drunk neighbor is better qualified than Hillary Clinton. Experience can be good or bad. Her experience proves she can't do the job.
