Unfortunately, a great majority of American voters are lazy and completely uninformed (aka willfully ignorant) when it comes to politics, elections and candidates! This typically holds true whether the person who they seek to elect for office is running for dog catcher all the way up to president! Sadly, in the era of the 30-second soundbite and a media that has clearly chosen an ideological side to support, it's not all the fault of the American people. Of course to be fair, the sheeple who roam among us are typically willing to be led as opposed to being leaders, take little to no responsibility for their actions and the decision of who to elect as President of the United States will take a back seat to more important issues like reality TV and Facebook
You will listen to Hillary's shrill scream telling you how dangerous Trump is. None of this is to say that Donald Trump is a perfect candidate because of course he isn't. His over-the-top, sophomoric and abusive rhetoric is anything but presidential and he is a relative unknown in many ways. Of course in Election 2016 as in any election, we are dealing with candidates who are either politicians or politician wanna be's fervently denying their pasts, revising history, pointing the finger of blame for any failures away from themselves and basically telling whichever constituency they are in front of what said constituency wants to hear.
FeelingTheBern If you're young and unhappy over your lot in life that is, for the most part no different than mine when I was young, you look for the candidate(s) who promise you the world. At the same time you resist the temptation to delve into what those promises might actually mean for America were they to ever be realized. You stay focused on the word 'FREE' and on phrases like 'the rich paying their fair share' that seem to have become the mantra for a new generation. You assume the posture of the victimized rather than one of ambition.
