Will a Third Party Candidate Deny Both Trump and Clinton Needed 270 Electoral Votes?
A third party candidate might prevent both Trump and Clinton from getting the 270 electoral votes necessary to win the 2016 presidential election by winning only about six states. What third party candidate scenarios are possible? Why are people considering them? What’s likely to happen next in this historic, critical and often tumultuous 2016 presidential election?

The Ideal Presidential Campaign
By Rabbi Ganz
As the 2016 U.S. presidential race continues on its lurid, nasty road, I find myself reflecting on the virulent, sickening process we Americans engage in to elect our leaders, and wondering if there could not possibly be a better way. Growing up in Scranton, Pennsylvania, the elementary school I attended was small but vibrant. As a way of teaching the students about politics and civics, a student election was held every year. The campaign began around three weeks before Election Day in November. The school insisted that in order to run for office, a student had to be worthy of being a role model. The candidates were well-behaved kids who were also good students. Excluded from running were those with a history of unacceptable conduct who were frequently in trouble because of what they did and how they spoke. [more sensible guidelines to the ideal campaign...]
Republicans Need to Get Behind Trump

“We can’t continue to allow China to rape our country. That’s what they’re doing.

Trump said this while campaigning in Indiana, right before crossing the primary finish line and firmly positioning himself as the Republican Party’s presumptive candidate. China was a prominent theme during the Trump campaign and the comment in Indiana indicates that Trump is not likely to let up on China any time soon. [more...]
Sanders Supporters May Gravitate Toward Trump
By James Hirsen
The growing discontent with Hillary among those who “feel the Bern” foreshadows a serious problem that the Clinton campaign may have with Sanders supporters should she be named the Democratic nominee. Hillary is viewed as a bona fide member of the same political establishment that proponents of Sanders despise. Bernie has spotlighted Clinton’s ties to Wall Street donors both on the campaign trail and in media appearances, while he simultaneously exploits her severe credibility problems. Assuming that the Democratic convention holds a Hillary coronation, as is currently expected, many of those in the Sanders camp will be searching for voting alternatives, and the campaign of the presumptive GOP nominee would most certainly be happy to provide a new political home.
