Finally! The long-awaited November 2016 presidential election is almost upon us. It’s only about two months until Election Day! Pollsters predict it will undoubtedly be one for the history books, representing a stunning paradox: For the first time in modern history, both major candidates are far more unpopular than they are popular. But that has not dimmed public interest or anticipated voter turnout, which promises to set new records.
Heading down the stretch, the close, bitterly fought contest has sunk to a new low with leading candidates — former State Department Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton, combative, 69-year-old progressive, left-leaning Democrat, who is waging a fierce, personal knock-down, drag-out battle against the unpredictable, authoritarian hero of millions of angry blue-collar voters, the intimidating bully-billionaire, Donald J. Trump, 70, who has never run for public office and shows it.
