Don't believe me? Let's look at the candidates.
In the view of a large plurality of Americans, Clinton is an indelibly dishonest harpie, loathed by her own party and in a heated political battle against an avowed socialist whose master economic plan is free stuff for slackers and hipsters and a doubling of the national debt. Oh, and she's also facing a potential criminal indictment.
On the other hand, a recent poll tells us Trump is less popular than head lice, root canal and even Nickelback. In the view of the Stop Trump crowd (which includes a large swath of his own Republican Party), his entire governing plan is that he doesn't have one, and his campaign platform is a 5-by-7 index card of insults and promises of border walls and religious litmus tests for anyone wanting to come to Trumpmerica.
Want to tell me again why this election is so important?
The 2016 presidential race is the political equivalent of the Browns vs. the Chargers. It's the blizzard in April that will wash away in a few days or melt under the spring sun. Trump-Clinton is this year's "Our Brand is Crisis," a big-budget political flop with an alluring cast that ultimately was too shallow and outrageous to matter.
The irony is that more Americans will vote in this election than any other, only to elect a president whose mark in history will be that of a placeholder until the real one takes over in 2020. Even an opportunist the likes of Marco Rubio took himself out of the running to be Trump's vice president, telling CNN recently that the GOP standard-bearer would be better off picking someone more in tune with him philosophically. Translation: I still want to have a political future so keep me away from this guy.
