Recently, we exposed the main reason people will be voting for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton: simply to block the other candidate from winning.
Now we find the motivation behind the responses: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are set to be the two most disliked general election candidates of modern times.
According to The Hill, in a poll conducted by FiveThirtyEight, 37% of voters hold a "strongly unfavorable" view of Clinton, with only one candidate having a worse result in the last 36 years: Donald Trump. Trump came in with a solid 53% of voters viewing him as "strongly unfavorable"
Given the fact that Hillary and Donald are two of the most disliked presidential candidates of modern times, and voters are really only voting to keep the other party's candidate out of the White House, the race is shaping up to be quite interesting, as both candidates will most certainly go negative early and often to play on those poll results.
"I think 'slugfest' would be an understatement" said Boston University professor Tobe Berkovitz.
While Trump was written off early in the GOP primary process, we are sure the same will happen again in the general election as he faces off against the seasoned political machine that is the Clinton camp. While we are not sure how he'll ultimately fare against Hillary in the battle for the White House, one thing is a guarantee: Trump will make things interesting. Perhaps, like him or not, that's a good thing at the end of the day for America.
