With GOP supporters ominously spelling out the name of their chosen candidate via the Republican primaries, voters may move to the side of the Democrats for the final election.

The year has just begun, but it has already proven to be an eventful one for politics.

The untimely death of Supreme Court Justice Scalia, numerous civil shootings, email scandals, and wildly off-topic GOP debates ranging from the extreme to the inappropriate have characterized this year as one of excitement and fearfulness. And this fearfulness is driven by a lack of faith in the nation’s direction without strong leaders like Justice Scalia.

A candidate like Marco Rubio may temporarily appease the masses with his proposed “abolition of the IRS,” but overall these policies are illogical and are infallible solutions at best. These plans are solely contrived to gain votes, and pay little, if any, attention to the actual execution of methods.

In addition, the Republican Party is argued to be at its seams.

Having been displaced from the White House for eight years due to Obama’s two terms of presidency, GOP members are desperate to get back into power.

In relentless bids for the White House,  Republican candidates have all but tripped over each other. Pointing out lies, mentioning the size of one’s “manhood,” and even breaking the rules of the hosting debate network by talking to campaign managers during commercial breaks, have all resulted in a fear of how low the U.S. would sink if one of them was elected.

It is for this reason that voters will set their eyes on Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders as the solution to those woes.

Clinton has the highest amount of voters in the entire presidential campaign, and they continue to rise.

The only thing that can stop her polls from growing is another email scandal. But, even that possibility is unlikely, making her an unstoppable political force.

Clinton will be a refuge for GOP voters who are unsure of where their party is going, which is strictly downhill.

“The sooner I can become your nominee, the more I can begin to turn my attention to the Republicans,” said Clinton according to the Washington Post.

Until final elections come, voters will merely have to wait and see who is left. With GOP candidates dropping out every primary, it will be clearly evident which ones will stay; and at that point, Republican voters must choose to hold or leave.

    It’s interesting reading this article two months later, and looking at the democratic party. The split between Bernie supporters and Hillary supporters is growing, many Bernie supporters have flat-out said they will never, under any circumstances, vote for Hillary. In addition, many Bernie supporters consider themselves independents, so there’s a decent chance many of them will vote for Trump, especially if they have a “never Hillary” attitude (Obviously many Bernie supporters also have a “Never Trump” attitude). Second, considering that Hillary is most likely going to get the nomination, it seems a bit ridiculous to say that the Democratic Party is our last hope. Hillary has flip-flopped on so many issues, to the point where it’s impossible to tell what she will do in office. Bernie also talked about why he doesn’t believe Clinton is not qualified (here’s the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qQI9RS9333c), which is also a pretty decent summary of why I don’t believe she’s qualified.

    “Clinton has the highest amount of voters in the entire presidential campaign, and they continue to rise.”
    This statement is ridiculous. This is like saying because Hitler had a large number of votes (even though he didn’t have a majority), he would be a good leader. Looking at the disastrous results of World War 2, I think we can conclude that what he did was not good for the German people in the long run.

    “Clinton will be a refuge for GOP voters who are unsure of where their party is going”
    Considering a poll from the NY times on the favorable-ness of Trump and Clinton, I think the same could be said about democrats who could potentially vote for Trump.

    I find it amusing that just 2 months after this article is published, much of what is said about the GOP candidates can now be said about the democratic party candidates. This just shows how divided the nation as a whole is, and nothing more.
