In 2012, Mitt Romney was expected to win in the polls but Barack Obama came out as the President returning for a second-term, to a shocked America. But how uncertain is the political game this time around?
In the United States, it is a good time to set priorities straight. Elections-fever has gripped the nation but there is also widespread rage over the local political narrative: the general idea for decades now has been that America needs a new direction to steer to. Wages have been sluggish, as the rich keep on getting richer, and fears in American cultures, such as the white population dwarfing nationally dictate the American economy; all of this are the aftermath of the dissolving of the Soviet Union, and the United States of America enjoying for quite some time a status as a global superpower, all alone. So, when Trump and Cruz promise to make the country great again, it all sounds so artificial.
China is a country on-the-rise, and if America was Europe there would be protests by now over Donald Trump (and Bernie Sanders) but this is America: Trump is all-poised to maybe even win. Protests in the country are always against aristocracy because British colonial history has implanted that legacy in the fabrics of their history. The whole electoral system distributes central power and the race has been so intense, from Iowa to New Hampshire. What was all fueled up to be a Bush-Clinton farce over the White House, spat out a more civilized battle between Trump-Clinton, I believe, with Cruz completing the triangle.
Trump has his own money influencing the campaign, for a change from his in-party contender, and what is working against the political tide is that Americans are only properly fired up about politics in the primaries, during which the thought “the state of the United States” is on everyone’s mind, even though unemployment is not a huge concern and neither is the United States’ economy, which is performing better than fellow developed nations. Soon, the race grows boring even for the most politically-dedicated – Sanders was also expected to oppose Hillary Clinton less by going out of steam as he approached the South, populated by delegates, which has been proven partly true. Clinton, meanwhile, has black Democrats backing her, but Trump is still quite ahead because he has broken out a fiery performance for the crowds built of Cruz-haters and Trump-happy people.
The Republican Party has put up front runners, who are both actively destroying the positive image that the party has always normally been associated with. Neither Trump nor Cruz offer any sound policies or economic solutions but they are on the ballot providing a much more pleasant alternative to Jeb Bush. Trump is also busy forking out from the right and the left, and there is always a great worry that he could win over the center with his brashness. At the end of the day, Cruz and Trump are naturally better at campaigning than Clinton, but a major poll is suggesting Clinton has a greater than 50 percent chance of winning the elections, this year.Embed from Getty Images
