Washington (AP) – With just four weeks left before Election Day, the race is still not over, and as Election Day nears, we’re asking how voters are reacting to the political drama unfolding in their homes, offices and social media feeds.
With the first polls opening this week, the most important question for voters is how they feel about the candidates vying for the Republican presidential nomination, and their chances of beating Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton in November.
The race for the presidency has been a close-run thing since President Barack Obama’s re-election in 2012, and with a new president in office, a new party in control of both houses of Congress and the presidency, voters are less likely to look past the next president.
Still, with the next presidential election on the horizon, it is important for voters to be on top of their mind, said John Sides, director of the Marquette Law School Center on Presidential Elections.
What’s going on?
I think it’s clear that the candidates are not getting enough support from the people, and people want to know what’s going to happen in November,” he said.
In some ways, the election is a political game that has gone on for some time.
As we have seen throughout the 2016 campaign, the two parties are united in their opposition to President Donald Trump, and that has been the central dividing line in this campaign.
Trump has been viewed as a danger to the country and a threat to the United States, and his campaign has been criticized for not having enough money for advertising.
The 2016 presidential race was one of the most divisive in recent U.S. history.
There were also major political shifts in the 2016 election, as some states, including New York and Pennsylvania, became swing states in the general election, giving Trump a chance to win.
Sides noted that it is possible that there are other factors that have contributed to the race that are playing out now.
The most prominent of these is the rise of independent and third-party candidates who are gaining ground in the race, including the Libertarian Party candidate, Gary Johnson, who is expected to win the Libertarian nomination for president.
Another factor is the heightened awareness of how important the presidential race is in a country that has a long history of partisan rancor and a long-standing political tradition of electing two candidates for president who are equally unpopular, Sides said.
It’s not clear that there will be a landslide, but this is not a race that you can say is over, Siding said.”
The election is still a contest of personalities and who will win, and the candidates will still be trying to keep their promises and make sure that they’re doing what they’re elected to do.
“What is the state of play right now?
But there are still plenty of factors to watch for. “
The candidates are getting better, the voters are getting more engaged,” he added.
But there are still plenty of factors to watch for.
The race is likely to remain tight for months, and there will likely be some significant changes in the polls over the next several weeks.
For example, if both major-party nominees fail to garner enough votes in November, Trump will likely lose the election, said Jon Ralston, a political science professor at the University of Florida.
That could be enough to throw the election into the House of Representatives.
But it could also cause some major issues for Democrats, Siders said.
Also, there are signs that Democrats are not running as strong a campaign as they did in 2012.
That is not necessarily bad news for Republicans, because they are not a large part of the electorate, Simes said.
The biggest concern for Democrats is that voters may be fed up with the Trump presidency.
But there are several factors that could keep Trump in office longer than the election itself, Siles said.
For one thing, there is a long list of Republican and Democratic voters who are dissatisfied with their own candidates, including some in the House.
And some Democrats have said that it would be too late to reverse course on health care, tax cuts and other issues if Trump loses.
The final question is whether voters will get enough information from the candidates about the state and future of the country.
Some candidates have been willing to release more information than others.
But it is clear that, even if the candidates were to release a more complete picture, the public would not have much of an idea what is going on, Sases said.SIDES: Trump is doing his best to divide and conquer the country, SIDES: The Clinton campaign is focused on winning the White House, and SIDES (The Washington Times): Trump and his supporters are angry, SIDS: The Democrats are a party that’s in a fight to the death.
