Small business owners are keeping a close eye on the presidential race, hoping to get insight into the candidates' stances on issues that will most affect them.
However, they are divided when it comes to who will deliver for Main Street.
For Hanieh Sigari, CEO of the health-care agency Home Helpers, the choice is clear — Donald Trump would be the best president for small business.
"Trump brings a perspective as a business owner, he brings a different perspective and this is ultimately what we need, currently, in this environment."
In her role, Sigari deals with the Department of Veterans Affairs, and said she often waits six months to a year to get paid. She believes the billionaire will add reforms and streamline the process.
However, Brian Smith, co-founder of Brooklyn's Ample Hill Creamery, thinks Hillary Clinton is best suited for the job. His company is trying to secure a bank loan to build out a factory, and Clinton's proposals will help deregulate those issues and allow money to flow more freely, he said.
And he isn't concerned about her call to boost the minimum wage. The former secretary of state favors $12 an hour at the federal level and $15 at the state and local levels. Bernie Sanders touts a $15 hourly national minimum wage. Trump has been unclear on his stance, other than stay he is open to doing something.
"I fully support moving a minimum wage up, I think it's the right thing to do," Smith told CNBC's "Power Lunch. "
"We can support $15. We may have to pass some of that on to the customer of course … I think the staff and our scoopers and the customer service, all of it increases."
Sigari said a big issue for her is the Obama administration's effort to boost the overtime salary threshold, a move that Clinton has praised. The threshold would jump from just over $23,000 to over $50,000.
"Salaries need to increase with inflation and to bump something like that up would be detrimental to small businesses," she said. "What ultimately winds up happening is company owners, such as myself, start decreasing benefits and start decreasing rates."
Overall, there have been few details on key issues business owners say affect them. The latest Wells Fargo optimism index shows that about 70 percent of entrepreneurs said the candidates are not discussing the issues that are most important to them.
