The 2016 election almost only one year away. There are two candidates that are getting most of the attention, Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

In the Democratic Party the major candidates are Joe Biden, Lincoln Chafee, Martin O’Malley, Bernie Sanders, and Jim Webb.
Donald Trump is a successful billionaire businessman that has very strong options about illegal immigrants. If Trump is elected he is planning to build a huge wall to stop illegal immigration, known as the Great Wall of America. Trump has been accused of being racist towards Mexicans and American‐Mexicans. Trump has also been accused of being sexist but he denied all of the accusations and brushed them off him shoulder. Trump is currently the leader in the polls on CNN.
“If I could vote I would definitely vote for trump because he’s so cool” Junior Jackson Montgomery said.
Hillary Clinton is running for the second time in a row. Last election Clinton was very close in the polls with Barack Obama, but Obama slipped away with a few more votes for the win. Clinton hasn’t let her lose slow her down she took to this election even harder than she did in the last one. Clinton the former First Lady of the United States and former U. S. Senator from New York has many opinions about the hottest topics. Clinton wants to keep and strengthen Obama care and wants to cut taxes on the middle class.
“I would vote for Hillary because I like the idea of middle class tax cuts. If taxes are cut my mom can buy me more food” Senior Lee Groon said.
The 2016 election has many relevant issues such as opinions on gun control, the national debt, illegal immigration, health care, welfare, tax reform and many more. Each presidential candidate has their own opinions and voters decide who to vote on based on those opinions. The Republican Party believes in more conservative ideas while the Democratic Party believes in liberal ideas. The republican and democratic parties are butting heads like they do in all elections but in this election Clinton and Trump are especially getting pounded by the press. Clinton and Trump both have backgrounds that people find easy to manipulate. Clinton has the scandals with deleted emails and Trump is a wealthy businessman that some people think is clueless about politics.
“I don’t care about the Presidents past issues as long as they are a good president now” junior Ethan Brunelli said.
