Interesting vote so far. I expect it to look a lot more lopsided as the poll goes on.

If anyone who chose Trump is serious, can they PLEASE explain why? I'm from socialist Europe, so I have been wrecking my brain trying to figure out why not all Americans are totally appalled by Trump and his verbal diarrhea.

They don't want to live under sharia law, have terrorist attacks, or pay even more for socialist inventions. I mean, we pay 1/3rd of a dollar to social security, plus medicare, medicaid. Then there's those dirty Mexicans stealing our water and our jobs. I mean, you can go to Trump's website and his supporters and look at his policies.

Edit: I'll find a reputable site looking at his stances. You know, people actually dislike socialism.

I'm American and not especially socialist, and I am appalled that not all Americans are totally appalled by Trump and his verbal diarrhea.

Here's Donald's views from his website.

One of the few good things about Trump I believe is that he doesn't care about the gay marriage ruling, so I give him some credit.

He's the presidential candidate that the United States both needs and deserves. The top 1% need to pay their fair share, universal healthcare is working out just fine for almost every other industrialized nation on the planet, paid-college tuition would effectively address the student-loan debt burdening many American citizens and would introduce more educated workers to the market, Super-PACs need to be abolished if we ever want to see any real change within the political system, trickle-down-economics sucks figurative ass, etc.

If you don't support Sanders then I hope you'll be happy with Trump or another pawn of the establishment -- because that's what you'll be getting.

Considering how Sanders readily gives Clinton a pass on most things makes me thing he's running for Vice President. His followers remind me of Ron Paul back in the day the way they take over online polls but lose by mile when the actual voting takes place.

What kind of leader lets someone from the crowd bully him and take over his event?

My country effectivley told Trump to fuck off. I'm rather proud of my country doing so. Trump wants to restrict the internet - in his own words "close" parts of it. I can't stand for anybody who wants to restrict the internet in any way. He may call me a fool for calling freedom of speech but the only way our countries can move forward is if we can listen to and understand others. Whever their opinions are good or bad we need the internet to be unrestricted so that even those who are wrong can speak and we can understand why they are wrong. I mean, the way he wants to do it won't work (no politician knows how the internet works it seems) but that only makes the possibilities of what he could do worse.

Sanders is a socialist practically. I am a socialist. Most of his policies are in line with mine.

I mean, I don't get a vote in the US election but if you're seriously considering voting Trump over a system that a lot of Europe thrives under then your country has problems. Even if you're not a socialist it's anything over Trump.
