Clinton vs Trump

8 November, 2016, Tuesday, has been set for US presidential election. Hillary Clinton from Democratic, Donald Trump from the Republican, Gary Johnson from Libertarian and Jill Stein from Green are on the Battleground. Both Trump and Clinton are from New York. Clinton would be the first lady President “if elected” in the history of USA, whereas Trump would be the oldest “if elected”.

To know who will make it to the White House, we must wait up to election result day. 270 Electoral Votes are required to win for the President. The upshot forecast conducted daily by New York Times indicates the high chance of Clinton’s win, but her recent email leaks could favor Trump.

 

They recently proposed their Economic Policy and unsurprisingly are very different with each other.

    Hey this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
