    Hilary v Trump? (I would probably hold my nose and vote for Trump.)

    Bernie v Trump? (I would probably vote for Bernie just because there is no way he can win.)

    How about you? How would you vote and why?

    I'm not voting for Trump, Hillarity, or Bernie under any circumstances. I would sit out voting for President or write someone else in there.

    My main criteria for President is simple: "How many paths to God are there? How does one get to Heaven?" Any answer that does not articulate, "By Jesus Christ alone" disqualifies the candidate for me. If they answer the question to my satisfaction, after that, I will look at individual political issues.

    I will write in my candidate. Trump is never getting my vote.

    If those are the only two choices - I'm staying home.

    I'll be looking over the independent candidates this election.

    For the fifth time in a row, I'd be writing someone in. Neither Trump, Hillary nor Bernie meet my "Two Greatest Commandments + 1 " requirement for me to even consider supporting any of them.

    If it's Cruz or Rubio, they get disqualified on the Second Greatest Commandment and the +1.

    The only person I'm still thinking about writing in who would have come out of that original clown car group is Rand Paul.

    I look at Trump the same way I looked at Romney. If I don't think you love the Jesus of the Holy Bible, as a follower of that Jesus, you CANNOT have my vote.

    If you lived in Nevada, you would vote for Harry Reid because he is a Democrat.

    Harry Reid, the Mormon? I'm sorry. But how is he different from Romney in his beliefs?

    He doesn't meet my "Two Greatest Commandments +1" test.

    He's also entirely too close to that evil woman, Nancy Pelosi.

    He is different from Romney in that he is a staunch supporter of Obama--like you.

    You're just bumming out because the Indiana primary isn't until May and you can't wait that long to vote for Bernie Sanders.

    Not to contradict an administrator, but it may be that Trump will run as a third party as the GOP continues to fracture and Trump currently has 2/3rds of the GOP against him. Trump is a boring lout, a bankrupt casino owner, a man who is much like Obama in his teenage behavior.

    Never underestimate the ability of the GOP to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    As for the Democrats, I could care less as I would not vote for the Marxist Sanders and I would not vote for the liar Hillary, a stalking horse for a third term for the white Bill Cosby.

    Sorry, Charlie, I'm a registered Republican. The Indiana primary never matters because it is too late. Bernie is a commie but he should carry Minnesota in November, huh?

    Not going to give the two corrupt parties the satisfaction. Voting is an illusion to make men feel they have a say.

    My "Two Great Commandments" for voting are:

    1) Never vote for anyone from Philadelphia
    2) Lawyers are lowest on the list of potential candidates.​

    I've only applied them to state and local elections but they could be expanded a bit in national elections;

    I'd eliminate New Jersey and NYC candidates and community organizers.

    An impossible choice... I'd very reluctantly vote for Trump.
    I see him as a Obama Republican.
    I question his moral compass - like Obama, it's center on his own image.
    He tickles the ears of his supporters and probably would trample over the laws of the country without regard. Unlike Obama who has the ever-enduring support of the Democrats, Trump could find himself "fired" when both parties couldn't stand his theatrical antics.
