    Please use this thread to discuss anything and everything Trump v Clinton during the run up to - and the aftermath of - the United States Presidential election. The first thread was very busy, and had reached frankly gargantuan proportions, something the forum software doesn't stomach too well. You can find the old thread here.

    It is worth noting that a new poll has also been created. This may be a good opportunity to observe whether there has been a significant change of opinion since the last poll, something that would hardly be surprising given the twists and turns that have been being blasted from every media outlet in recent weeks!

    There should really be a 'neither' option. Either way the US are completely screwed. Wouldn't be surprised to see Hillary pulled and replaced. The outrage from Americans over the emails is much much larger than we see portrayed in the media in the UK.

    yet again the poll is flawed, there are some other candidates in this election in addition to the main ones, no they likely won't win however you still include minority parties in UK general election threads

    secondly, there ought to be a none of the above option (especially if the minority candidates aren't included)

    The poll is fine and shy Trumpsters can vote without fear that their delicate dem friends will get triggered and sulk.

    Yeah I can't vote on this because I wanted Sanders.

    So what?

    Yep. The independent audits vindicated the Clinton Foundation's own reports. 88% of the Foundation's income is spent on charitable programs. Only 12% is spent on overheads, including salaries.

    Still waiting for evidence of this.

    Possibly some huge revelations to come out this week concerning the Clinton Foundation, and specifically Hillary's non profit 'Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves'. It was an idea dreamt up by Hillary to supposidly supply the third world with cleaner cookstoves. This twitter account has been very active recently, and they claim they have information to prove that this company was just a cover to funnel cash to individuals and deal in insider trading.

    The official website was just taken down http://cleancookstoves.org

    You really need to stop reading Breitbart and start getting information from decent sources!
    In their relatively short existence they have been caught up in a lot of controversy and shocking reporting practices :

    ACORN undercover videos

    Shirley Sherrod

    "Friends of Hamas" story

    Misidentification of Loretta Lynch
    Quality track record

    The cookstove project was launched by Clinton but it's actually run by the United Nations. If there are problems, they have nothing to do with Hillary.

    Breitbart is for people who can't cope with reality.

    If you want to know what a significant amount of trump supporters think of the world go read some of the crazy 'news' reports on breitbart. It's their bread & butter, which explains a lot :p

    Did we really need a second thread for this?

    My point being to at least retire the other one if you're going to keep this open.

    Breitbart is for people who consider 4chan to be part of the liberal MSM.

    If I was eligible to vote, I wouldn't. Both candidates are utterly appalling.
