As many American citizens may already know, the 2016 presidential election is quickly approaching. This election is different than most, just for the fact that there are so many people who want to be nominated as a candidate for the awe-inspiring presidential seat. The fact of the matter is, there are too many people to keep track of. It is nearly impossible to keep track of who’s in the running, who wishes they were, and who’s just fooling around. And once that has been straightened out, how does one decide who they want to represent them and their party? It is a tough call, but hopefully this list can straighten some things out, and provide people with details and helpful knowledge so that they can make informed decisions.
Trump is quite possibly the most arrogant, strange, and offensive person competing for the presidential candidacy. Unfortunately, he is also the most well-known. He has zero attributes that would make him a valid candidate for president, but no one seems to have told him that.
Fun fact: Trump had to attend military school after acting out in regular elementary school.
Webb is a Vietnam war veteran, author of a few books, and has served as the senator of Virginia until 2013. His chances of winning were good, until he came out with a statement supporting the Confederate flag.
Fun fact: He’s a Democrat – surprise!
Fiorina is the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard (she was booted from the company), and she then was the campaign advisor for John McCain in 2008. She ran for Senate in California, and lost.
Fun fact: When running for Senate in 2010, Fiorina produced two of the most strange and offensive political ads ever.
Bush is the son and brother of two previous presidents. He has gained much support from top Republicans, and will continue to do so – because of his last name.
Fun fact: The issue that Bush seems to promote most during his time as governor of Florida was educational reform – something most people can actually get behind.
