ROAD TO THE WHITE HOUSE

ROAD TO THE WHITE HOUSE

Three historic debates are in the books, debates that brought in more than 10 million more viewers than when the now President Obama won his presidency. It can only mean one thing, people are excited and want to know who the next president of the United States is going to be, or of the flip side it’s like watching one big reality show with a new twist at the end of every episode.

On one end we have Hillary R. Clinton, wife of former US President Bill Clinton and a woman who carries a long list of political positions that makes her qualified just from a glance. 

Hillary Clinton

She’s the 67th United States Secretary of State serving from 2009 to 2013, the junior United States Senator representing New York from 2001 to 2009, and First Lady of Arkansas during Bill’s governorship from 1979 to 1981 and from 1983 to 1992. She has one daughter, Chelsea Clinton, and Hillary received her education honors from Wellesley College, Yale Law School, Yale University, and others.

Then we have the Donald Trump, who’s background and interests are not reflective of his Democratic opponent, but yet of a wealth and empire building contextual. Trump is the chairman and president of The Trump Organization. He’s current wife is Melania Trump (m. 2005), his two previous wives are Ivana Trump, and Marla Maples. He received his education honors from Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, New York Military Academy, Fordham University, and The Kew-Forest School. Donald has children from all three of his wives, Ivanka, Donald Jr., Tiffany, Eric, and the youngest Barron Trump. Trump’s background is more reflective of his business ventures, from his published books, to his appearances on movies and TV shows ranging from his short scene in Home Alone 2, and his TV baby The Celebrity Apprentice.

So as we can see, each of the candidates have an extensive background that has given them the opportunity to run for presidency, but how would the people take to them when the time is given. November 8, 2016 is election day, and that is when we find out which one will be the victor. There were three debates that took place, and Hillary Clinton won them all. Each candidate had their standout moments, but on the negative end, it seemed that Donald was the champ in that department.

Within the debates, Trump has made some mistakes that could possibly have sunken his ship and will keep him from swaying people to vote for him. From the release of the recorded conversation with Billy Bush, and how Donald Trump was on record saying many lewd things about women, and how he has the upper hand because of his status in the entertainment industry. Those statements were brought up during the Second Presidential Debate, and Donald was put on the hot seat because of it. Right after that debate, there were many women who have allegedly engaged with Donald Trump in the past, have all come forth and have said that Trump had in some way sexually assaulted them. They are only allegations now, but those allegations have hurt him at the voting polls, and The Trump Organization doesn’t seem to be happy about the situation at hand.

Throughout all of the Presidential Debates, the ongoing conversation in Hillary’s camp, has been her email fiasco. As of now, the FBI has stated there is nothing that they can do, but Donald Trump has pushed that conversation at each debate, and also at his rallies.

Now if this was a popularity race, Donald Trump just from the attention alone he has been receiving, he would have won already. But this isn’t that type of race, this is a race to hold the highest office in the United States of America. Currently per Bing Election 2016 Polls by State, Hillary R. Clinton is up by +6.00 at 44% across the nation. Although we still have about two weeks left, anything can and will happen.
