It seems like Hillary is the favourite to win the presidency- she has a lot of support and the media seems to hate Trump.

I reckon Trump will win. I just think people are too embarrassed to say that they like him, but in the election it's anonymous..

Trump is Hillarys greatest asset, almost guarantees her win if he is the only other contender.

I reckon she'll set hubby up with a biter if she's no 1 in US.....

Samboz- But on the same token, Hillary is not much competition for Trump either. Neither of them would be good for America's future. Clinton would continue doing nothing about the problem of terrorism and Trump would change America (and the world) for the worse.. Bernie Sanders for president!!! If only..

If they were the best candidates AUS could front up then it would be a disaster !

If comparisons were made TURNBULL/SHORTEN v CLINTON/TRUMP..........

Who would rather T/S or C/T in Aus ?

This election has seen the US take one step closer to tyranny.

Hilary Clinton would have been unelectable if she was running against anyone other than Trump. The election now effectively has only one candidate and therefore barely qualifies as an election anymore.

If democracy isn't dead in the US it is certainly terminally ill.

I think the States are damned which ever way they go.

On one hand they have a bloke with absolutely no tact, but he does spruik freedom of liberties, even though he himself seldom practices the theory.

Then on the other hand we have a lifetime politician who has never really known a moment of absolute truth in her entire life. She has a very dark cloud hanging over her, and the old saying, where there is smoke there is fire, certainly sits comfortably within the house of Clinton.

One thing for sure is that Trump is not hiding anything from anyone. The fool you see is the fool you will get. Clinton on the other hand, would be kissing you on the cheek and sliding a blade into your back, all with that wonderful dubious smile she flashes continuously.

Poor ol' U S of A.

Think you will find the congressional elections will mean more / have more impact than the Presidential elections for the average US citizen. Republicans would be filthy that Rubio didnt get up in the primaries or even the bloke from Ohio as they may well have won at a general election against Clinton Inc.

Dunno Ron, infatuation is a positive admiration of someone/thing, none of the posts so far would lean that way, probably the opposite such as disenchanted/disinterested.

We'd be naive though if we didn't recognise the US's position as an ally wasn't a prime factor for our national security.

With TRUMP as POTUS who'd know where that alliance could take us!

edit---heard a female commentator in the US this morning, she thought TRUMP couldn't have done more if he tried, to get Hillary into power, also my thoughts as per prev. post.

And that's why I slightly prefer Trump over Clinton. You can just always sense that she is hiding something or not telling the full truth; her words are too calculated and too rehearsed for them to seem honest, IMO. Trump lets his words slip out too easily sometimes but he's very honest. But geez he is a dangerous man.. up there with Putin I reckon.

In the past people like Trump and for that matter Hanson would passed over as zealots. However through the aggressive push towards Political Correctness and the erosion of social liberties, these once labelled Zealots, now have the ear of a good portion of the population that are totally fed up to the eye balls with a media controlled political machine that bends and sways with the popular breeze.

I know I for one have had it with self proclaimed Gods telling us how to speak, think, and feel. I am over the righteous few sitting in judgement of the majority.

Does this mean I would vote for Donald. No. When you have the ability to put one finger on the red button, you probably want somebody that is a little more predictable than the Trump.

Anyway, like Obama, neither will be able to do anything without long negotiations with Congress.

My analogy has always been that Trump is like a mud terrain tyre on a 4WD. In the majority of circumstances it is a crap tyre but when you are deep in it, putting one on MIGHT just get you out. It'll be messy but it might work. Hillary is just a regular run of the mill road tyre. Smooth, slick and brilliant when on a great track but will only dig you deeper when already in the mud and then when you do opt for a mud tyre down the track it'll be even messier than opting for it early.
Fact is whoever gets in things are going to be messy for a while. Question is what situation are we in and how long will the mess last?

Yes CF hysteria rains supreme when misinformation invades the ears of the mindless.

I said one finger, because that is all it is. I could be wrong, but from what I have read you need three keys all in the possession of three different individuals who are never in close proximity to one and other. So not an easy thing to organise let alone deliver.

It doesn't change the reason people are flocking to fundamentalism and nationalistic zealots. The wider community can see the erosion of liberties under the guise of political correctness. This is why it is easy for Trump, and Hanson for that matter, to play on fear and popular thought. There is also the fact that we are all over career politicians who have absolutely no idea of what is happening in the real world making decisions that effect us all but leaves themselves in a better position.

I don't think I have ever seen a time when politics worldwide has been so devoid of real thought and action. It is very difficult not to feel the weight of doom at the moment.

If Trump is President, we then have another reality show, Politician Apprentice.

All contestants must past certain tasks in getting the country up an running, and those who do not pass get taken into the Oval Office and then "You're Fired".

Maybe, but I think the possible consequences are too dire to consider. Therefore, nah.

I can't quite work out which one would be worse to be honest. I have a horrible feeling the consequences of either one getting in will be dire.

I think that Robert De Niro does a pretty good character assessment of Donald Trump:

https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=LLyTVAj6Dc0gY2gR4tY2MXKg¶ms=OAFIAVgC&v=hFpFDyKeqyA&mode=NORMAL

Hilary is not perfect. In many ways she's just another politician. Commentator, satirist and self-described 'genetic Republican' P. J. O'Rourke said that he would for the first time in his life vote for a Democrat. "Hillary is wrong about everything, but only within normal parameters".

If I were American, I'd be voting for Clinton even if she published her emails on a neon sign in Times Square.

Hillary is as corrupt and self serving as they come. Maybe even moreso than Trump. And she fully intends to continue the foreign policy that has caused so much suffering over so many years. Trump will undoubtedly pi$# off just about every moral person on the planet but Hillary is going to pi$# off every country that may be willing to go to war. And of course she will continue the far left crap that is leading to the rise of far right nationalism throughout the west. The idea of trump in power makes my skin crawl but the long term consequences may be less severe than the alternative. Then again. They may be worse. Thing is. we will never know because only one will get in and we will have to live with the consequences whatever they may be.

Thanks for the interesting sites Eevo & CF, if either of these ratbags is POTUS .........?

Maybe someone in the US will pull it all together and they will start again with some fair dinkum CLEAN candidates.

The FBI had to reveal the email situation with HC and DT in a sextape, "Weirder by the minute" is an understatement CF.

I have heard a lot of people wonder about just how we get to the situation where America gets to choose between these two.
I can't see it as anything but a sign of the division in our society.this is not an isolated incident. Trump, Hanson, brexit, the rise of the right in Europe. These things don't just happen. they are a reaction to the failings of the socialist /global experiment that the west has been partaking in. It simply went to far and now we will have to deal with the consequences. The backlash has probably only started and will unfortunately likely go too far itself.hopefully not though and whoever wins this US election we can only hope that the next candidate is more centred and compromising.

I've actually read that several times over the past few days. It seem many Americans would love to do the same.

Can crooked Hillary snatch defeat from the jaws of a dodgy Donald victory? A recent poll here produced these results about the daily double:

“A week out from the US presidential election and Essential polling has found that just 11% of Australians think that Donald Trump is “someone who will strengthen the US relationship with Australia” while 53% of Australians view Hillary Clinton as someone who will strengthen ties between the two countries. In a series of questions asking which attributes describe the two candidates, more than two-thirds of Australians polled associated the Republican with words like superficial (71%), narrow-minded (75%), arrogant (85%), intolerant (74%), aggressive (83%) and erratic (78%).

When it comes to Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, just 33% found her trustworthy, in polling that took place before the latest revelations over her emails, and 24% thought her more trustworthy than most politicians. Clinton scored highly on attributes like intelligent (74%), hard-working (71%) and a capable leader (60%). Expectations aren’t too high, though — only 39% of those polled would describe her as visionary.”

In a weeks time, our time we'll know either way which one of these two losers' wins, much to the detriment of their home country and Australia.

I completely agree. What is happening is a 'snap back' societies are starting to feel that globalism, 'left wing' policies have not delivered what they promised, a lot of this coming down to the loss of local industry to other countries, largely China. .
I agree that what we are seeing is just the start, don't be suprised in Hanson support continues to grow in Australia, and the growth of the far right starts to have an increase impact in Europe.

However wins in the US will be hated, and likely the worst President in history but let is be a warning to parties all around the western world.

What are the odds of either making it through a full term anyway without getting impeached, whoever wins is going to be fighting battles left right and centre throughout their term, however long it lasts. Bernie Sanders is a fool, only 18-21yo brainwashed students think his unicorn ideals are great, he reminds me of the far left greens here, idealistic (and sounds good, sure) but completely nonsense to implement any of it in the real world. Australians should take a passing care to who wins, trade implications and military alliances could change for the much worse. I agree with the notion that trumps rise is mainly due to people having had enough of leaders bowing to political correctness and the trashing of free speech and personal responsibilities, i am, its getting to the silly end, whats the end game for that direction, think about it, its worse in american institutions and universities than here, but look at safe schools program, and 18c (which got thrown out of court almost by contempt in relation the the qld uni students), i was watching videos on youtube about social justice warriors getting owned and stumbled across a guy called Ben Shapiro, i recommend getting on there and checking out some of his speeches at universities (a lot have banned him from doing so), and Ben Shapiro Thug Life,, funny [censored]

Some later films of WC Fields have titles and lead characters (played by WC) that somewhat describe the election and the candidates:

- You Can't Cheat an Honest Man (certainly not the Donald) with lead: Larson E. Whipsnade (Larson E could apply to either Trump and Clinton)

- My Little Chickadee (Hillary is certainly no spring chicken) with lead: Cuthbert J. Twillie (husband Bill is known as slick Willie)

- Never Give a Sucker an Even Break (thats how both Trump and Clinton view the American public), with lead: The Great Man (that's Trump's self opinion).

A sign in the USA says it all: "We the people, need help!"

Your right "The Sum of all Fears" which actually seems more appropriate than evil which may sound a bit extreme.

Too right, thank god this election is tomorrow cause I'm sick of hearing about it!! Has been a spiel on the bloody thing on the 7pm news every night for at least the last 4 months. For pete's sake its getting more coverage then an Australian election, and worse too as the loudmouth yanks in question are almost as irritating as our pollies!

I am just waiting for Alec Baldwin to reveal that he is the real Donald Trump.

Either way,

If Trump wins - everyone will be up in arms against America

If Hillary wins - everyone in America will be up in arms

Grim choice for the American people to choose from.

I would have laughed if everyone decided to vote for the independants and gave the bird to the Demos' and Repubs'

Not sure why everyone is so surprised trump is winning. Admittedly i too thoughy hillary would get over the line but this is just a continuation of a growing trend. And it won't be the end. europe will be next.

Once we saw Ohio and Florida breaking more to trump than expected it was clear that it was going to be much, much closer. I will also add that leaders here in Australia need to be careful and notice that global politics is seeing a rise of the political far right) now how they deal with that, well that's their decision to make.

The average US voter is "stoopid" ... and half the voters are "more stoopider" than that.

... but I must admit, that I'm not at all sorry to see the US's most corrupt politician "Crooked Hillary" lose the election.

Hopefully Donald will f'it-up so badly that a viable third party will grow.

Warren.

PS, My son Geoffrey is about to visit Canada, next week. He told me that today the Canadian Immigration site is down. Maybe that wall Donald is building is designed to keep the Seppos' in ... and save Canada.

No surprise here..its basically just a vote against the establishment ...Trump has no idea and his bold claims of what he will do are highly unlikely to happen and his huge ego will get in the way of reason but most people have voted that its a better gamble than the same old [censored] and political cronyism ...something had to change..and I think it will..unfortunately it may get worse before it gets better..but that is a price that I am willing to pay to make some changes to the horribly corrupt system that dictates our lives.....

the fact he is an idiot(among other things) is irrelavent. They were not voting for him. They were voting against the insiduous erosion of their rights. Not to mention the Hillary was just as bad a choice (if not worse) than Trump. Trump is not the problem. He may become a problem but he is what people desperately hope is a solution

The result isnt really all that unexpected. The democrat govt kept on whipping the working class, millions lost their houses, jobs but the real f-wits at Wallstreet who caused the mess walked away.
Then there is Hillary, Benghazi, email gate, calling Trump supporters halfwits, it all comes to one conclusion.
If you leave a sore untreated, there goes a limb or death & thats what happened.
What Trump does from now on will be interesting. No doubt stepping on a lot of toes including the TABOO topic.

The US Presidency is always about who has the biggest amount of funds in the pot to fund their campaign.





However, they are saying that Trump only spent half as much as Hillary, but made the most outlandish headlines with his mouth.

Maybe that is why the US is like a lunacy asylum, that it just didn't have any walls (as yet).

The US is starting to become like Gotham City. Just that Trump doesn't wear a bat-suit.

If the Democrats ran with Sanders the result would of been different. The fact that they shafted him in favour of Clinton spoke volumes about how the big end of town had infiltrated the once working class and union dominated Democrats. Sanders wanted the abolishment of the TPP, and was rather nationalistic in his own thinking, and this did not sit well with corporate America.

The weirdest part about this election is the fact that most of the unions were backing Trump and most of the corporates were on the Clinton bandwagon. A total reversal of historical voting trends. I don't think the unions would of been happy to align with him but his policy of reinvigorating local manufacturing and the implementation of tariffs on companies that have left America and want to bring their goods back into the country obviously resonated with them.

I also think the fact that Clinton was talking big about a possible tiff with Russia over Syria didn't help her cause. America is war weary, and a bit over the countless amounts of dollars being spent on issues that the populace does not see as any advantage to America and meanwhile domestically they are an economic shambles.

An American friend said to me that Obama will be remembered by the world as a fine leader, but by Americans he will be remembered as a lame duck.

I think a Trump win is good for freedom of choice and democracy. For too long we have been fed rubbish by a media devoid of ethics and impartiality, and by politicians who believe they are above the people they serve. Trump was smarter than the media gave him credit for and he used their bias against him as a tool to get his message out at a fraction of the cost that the Democrats incurred for their campaign. Inflammatory one liners got the attention of the media and then he delivered his message, all for free. He showed the media for the fools they are.

Interesting. Did Donald Trump tell People magazine in 1998 that if he ever ran for president, he’d do it as a Republican because “they’re the dumbest group of voters in the country” and that he “could lie and they’d still eat it up”?

Very believable, but according to this, it's bogus:

http://www.factcheck.org/2015/11/bogus-meme-targets-trump/

But there's more than enough to demonstrate what an egregious buffoon Trump is, how unsuited to the Presidency, much of it out of his own mouth.

Now to convince our lot that they represent the people.

On the subject of memes, another one is that the bully Biff Tanner in the "Back to the Future" franchise was based on Donald Trump:

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/10/21/how-back-to-the-future-predicted-trump.html

Bob Gale, one of the creators of the franchise, gives support to this. In the 1989 film Back to the Future II, in one timeline Biff had become rich and powerful, a gambling and entertainment czar, transforming Hill Valley into a corrupt, crime-ridden wasteland.

So is it true? Or was there a bit of post-hoc analysis to make a political point?

In any case, I fear that Trump might do to America what Tanner did to Hill Valley.

Yeah. The irony is hillarious. I can understand that they might be pissed that Hillary can win the popular vote but lose the election but if they really cared they would have been protesting before the election. They only care now because they lost.

"When all the non-racist, non-mysoginist, non-homophobic, non-bigoted ordinary everyday people get sick of you calling them racist, mysoginist, homophobes and bigots that they go out and vote against your candidate, do you:

A. Reevaluate your personal conduct and strategy of convincing people to share your politics?

OR

B. Call them racists, mysoginists, homophobes and bigots and yell at them even more?

According to my timeline you chose B. And that is why your candidate lost"

I'm impressed with the restraint, professionalism and credibility of our Foreign Minister Julie BISHOP.

While some of the leaders were bad mouthing the potential POTUS she didn't go down that path and has today shown some real leadership potential for Aus.

We are lucky to have her !

The irony... The world's self-proclaimed leaders of democracy and free speech choose only to make their voice heard after the fact i.e when it doesn't count

Clearly a significant proportion of the country voted for Trump (ironically the significant minority) however the Australian media has reported predominantly the anti-Trump sentiment. Is this because the media out of USA is focused on the East and West coastal areas where pro-Clinton and anti-Trump support is the strongest?

I am not a Trump fan but I have to admire his success as an entrepreneur and businessman. On the other hand I struggle to identify redeeming qualities in Hillary. She claims to be a "champion" for women however her passive demeanour in the aftermath of Bill's affair degraded her authority.

Disenchanted people around the world are tired of politicians. The constant disconnect from reality and repeated issues with corruption and scandal, while living a life of privilege, promotes discontent. Unfortunately for Hillary she could not separate herself from this stereotype and in my eyes was the "champion" for politicians and self-interest.

The world is in for a turbulent few years and I for one will observe with interest the political landscape that will evolve with President Trump. I hope collectively we can take the plunge and emerge safely on the other side however I reserve my concern......

Pretty much agree with this. I find it a little amusing all the people complaining about Trump winning when they haven't given him the chance yet. With Hilary, you knew exactly what you were going to get, and those weren't necessarily good things.

Was Reagan a gov in California first? If so he had some political experience prior. Trump is a deal maker so interesting to see how it plays out.

I would say if you lived in the regions the US has been destabilizing for the last 30plus years change could be a positive. I think Europe will be annoyed though. They really wont like having to do their own dirty work if trump follows through with his threats.

He has outstanding courtcases. So that may be legitimate. There is little doubt the teary eyed left will try and find any way they can to oust him though. It is becoming very clear they don't actually believe in democracy over there.

But were the courtcases brought during the election or before? It would be hard to imagine endorsement was given to his candidacy if they were brought before, or perhaps they were brought during the election by dubious entities for obvious reasons. Usually mud sticks, however this time it didn't.

If you think the anarchy is bad now, imagine if he was impeached on charges that many see as bogus.

So there is still hope for big Arnie becoming President yet.

Now they just had to do a few amendments to their Constitution.

Or maybe the Simpsons may get it right again!

Judging by the Simpsons, we can expect the next president of the United States after Donald Trump to be Lisa Simpson.

I thought in the episode where Lisa has become president she inherits the debt left over from President Trump.

I honestly wouldnt be surprised if Oprah runs for the democrats in the next election. There is no doubt the media is going to run a huge campaign against trump throughout his term, digging up anything and everything possible. Once again the rubber band effect has snapped as it does in culture, something goes to far one way, and its snaps back briefly too far the other way.

My guess is that whoever runs they will have either the easiest run to the whitehouse ever or not bother running at all.

He was President whilst Lisa was young, so his chance had come and gone. But he was the Governator, but never will be Presidator.

I am guessing a day or two of noise and then not too much else to be honest. It still would have been wrong but it is clear the concern over post election behaviour was directed at the wrong side.

All of the hand wringing non-Trump supporters will calm down and rally around 'Old Glory' again. When Bolton's Deep State takes the US to war with Iran. It isn't like Trump will will know that war has started until Bolton tells him that it is too late for peace options.

How else is the military industrial economy going to make America great again? ... by capping 180,000 leaking fracking wells in the US?

Privatized Democracy rules in the US ... OK. Trump is just another cheer leader.

Warren.

Lets hope not Warren. The only real hope of anything decent coming out of a Trump presidency is his desire to no longer be involved in constant conflict

Brett, I hope that you are right but the now retired long time Republican politician and peace activist, Ron Paul et.al, who vehemently defend the US constitution, all say, "The swamp will not be drained." The Deep State wont allow it to happen.

Warren.

I think he should give up twitter when he's inaugurated.

He asked CNN to give evidence to prove a negative today - https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/803421742815412224

While putting up his own claims without evidence -
https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/803423503978532864

Weird. He has it backwards.

He won the election which was a amazing achievement. Why does he waste his time on this kind of stuff? I'm willing to give him a chance but he needs to learn to let some things go.

While he may be a twit on twitter. Ok. A huge douch on twitter. Lets not sugercoat things. Comparing him to Hillary is interesting. She had up to 15 people to go through before she could post a tweet or tell a joke. Gotta wonder which is preferable. At least we know Trumps tweets are a reflection of who he is(good or bad),. We have no idea of the average pollies true beliefs.

IMO, those who tweet on Twitter are looking for attention and wanting to be heard.

Twitter can be a useful tool, but there are also useless tools who use Twitter.

That's true. At least with Trump we get the idea he's 'telling it like it is' - from his point at least.

And maybe it's better to have Trump now, rather than the smarter-Trump in the future. There's the appetite for it unfortunately, and better it happens when the country and world are relatively stable (despite what our newspapers tell us - eg: not worrying about mushroom clouds or a Japanese invasion, or getting drafted - ISIS in comparison are a bunch of kids throwing stones)

Well it has finally come down to this ... Young Grasshoppers.

At 3.00am OzEST Donald will be inaugurated as the 45 President of the United Snakes of America.

To celebrate this monstrous event, Rolling Stone Magazine will host The Official Donald Trump Inauguration Drinking Game. When RS hosted the last game, The Official Donald Trump Victory Speech Drinking Game, there was basically only one rule. Each time Trump boasted about how rich he was ... a White Russian was sculled. Those who played the game can't remember playing it.

Here is the skinny for tomorrow morning's game, if you're watching.

1) Drink every time Trump deploys the "pinchy fingers" rhetorical maneuver, knock one back. if he High-Fives or flaps his arms knock back a double.

2) Trump berates or insults a media outlet.

3) Mike Pence holds a fake smile for 30 consecutive seconds.

4) Trump name-checks a celebrity, or references The Apprentice.

5) Trump praises someone who until recently was a political enemy ... do adouble if he praises Paul Ryan.

6) Trump doubles up a modifier, i.e. "many, many" or "very, very."

7) Knock back adouble if the crowd chants "Lock her up!"

8) Trump gives long excoriations on the "mess" and "disaster" his predecessor left for him to clean up.

9) Trump references the popular vote vs. the Electoral College. Double if he claims he would have won the popular vote if he'd wanted to.

For more detailed rules and Twitter feed go to Rolling Stone ... and may God have mercy on your livers and I hope no one runs out of booze. To quote Donald, this is "very, very" possible.

Warren.

PS, I would have liked to have seen Trump's little circular lip pout included in the rules ... but this would have rendered players sh&tfaced within the first 10 minutes.
