The Americans are going to vote, they are about to exercise their franchise. What comes out of it may be an exciting thing to watch. But the very fact that the much hyped, talked about, written about and widely televised event in the history of American politics is about to see it’s closure.
On one hand we have Donald J Trump, a charismatic businessman and television broadcaster who never has hold a public office in his entire life. Declared insolvency of his group companies and still is a billionaire. While on the other we have Hillary Rodham Clinton who has been the former first lady while being the wife of former president Bill Clinton, a former secretary of state preceding John Kerry who has been in matters of policy making and implementation, who many think that she is also a war monger.
In his 1980 interview to Rona Barrett when asked if Trump would ever run for presidential election he replied right there that he does not think so. But he would definitely love to see someone more worthy and capable of being able to do the job of the president of the United States.
In 1987, in a show with famous Oprah Winfrey, when she asked Donald as to would he ever run for the presidential post and if not why? To this, Trump said that he probably will not run for the white house but he would love to see someone who is more capable as he is tired of seeing whats happening in the country and that it is getting ripped off.
If that is not enough, lets take a look at the social media driven American election. A simple tweet to tweet audience reaction can be analysed to gauge the popularity of the two candidates.
“We don’t want to shrink the vision of this country. We want to keep expanding it.” —Hillary

Now an 11 hour old tweet from Trump.

Now, off course this is just a social media comparison after going through their respective timelines which in no way is a scale of judgment. But definitely a food for thought.
