The election is just about four months away now and the whole campaign has turned into a veritable circus. It is impossible to turn on the television without hearing a candidate speaking or someone bashing a candidate. The whole thing has stepped right out of the political arena and turned right into something like a reality show. To step back and examine the election, the following are a few reasons that this election is such a circus.
Both Candidates Are Notoriously Hated
It seems pretty incredible that both of the current candidates, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, got to where they are with as many people that hate them. In fact, it is entirely possible that more people are voting for one or the other to stop the opponent than because they actually support the candidate. The dislike runs deep, “Stop Trump!” and “ABC (Anyone but Clinton)” have become popular slogans.
