I posted this earlier, it is a startling change of events. The good news is that the Republicans have made major inroads. What can this be attributed to?
In my opinion, the vast number of candidates has in many ways shone a light on the diverse opinions but as the last debate proved there is at least some solidarity in all of the candidates desire to improve America. Furthermore, the fact that Hillary has been given softballs and avoided oppositions in the debate has worked against her. Indeed, she avoided a female Democrat who was supposed to be in the debate but was kicked out as she apparently wasn’t willing to play nice with Hillary. To Wolf Blitzers credit, maybe the toughest and most honourable of the CNN reporters, he called the Democrat debate coordinator (or whatever her title is) out on the issue. She was stumbling with her answers, clearly showing her bias in protecting her. Consider that Sanders was almost drooling over her during the debate and voters probably felt they were being treated like schoolkids. It wasn’t a debate, it was a lengthy political ad for Clinton.
Clinton has really disappointed me with her staunch position on the TPP deal, especially considering most of the details haven’t even been released, though enough has been leaked. One of the best positions Obama and his team have taken is on such a trade deal, seven years of tough negotiations by multiple countries and Hillary flippantly tried to brush it off. Quite irresponsible if you ask me.
