Anyone been following the GOP debates?
 
What do you make of the Rep. candidates so far? Dem. ones starting next month.
 
Personally would love to see Sanders get the Democratic nomination, but don't know if his Nordic style policies would go down well in the U.S.

Would love to see Sanders vs Trump, social democracy versus lunacy. Would make a change from the lesser of two evils choice that normally occurs.

agree PM. Doubt it will happen but it would be interesting.

Sanders has some very interesting policies but as Seany says that mightn't sit well with the US electorate .

Donald trump will win the election. He's hitting hardcore republican values, in military and also financially.

Hillary Clinton ruined herself due to lack of transparency.

Not a hope Trump will win. GOP lost last 2 elections because they were so far to the right.

I like Sanders, if he went up against Trump it would be some clash of ideologies, not hard enough on guns though but that's to be expected giving his Vermont background.

Bernie is a great bit of stuff altogether.

America is an absolutely f**ked up ruthless greedy country. He is a breath of fresh air.

It frightens the shyte out of me that Trump is still the leading candidate for the Republican nomination.  In fact if frightens me that he should even still be in the running.  This guy is Putin on steroids.  He could win if there is a major perceived national threat during the campaign like a Daesh attack on the HOMELAND.
