I can't deal with it, I'm trying to use logic but it seems I'm incapable to see why someone who's in his right mind would vote for Donald Trump. I don't know if there's something about a major lack of education or a really strong wish for going backwards in history in the US.

I can't deal with it, I'm trying to use logic but it seems I'm incapable to see why someone who's in his right mind would vote for Donald Trump.

I don't know if there's something about a major lack of education or a really strong wish for going backwards in history in the US.

From an outsider perspective, this guy represents -at least ideologically- everything that is wrong in human and modern civilization.

Now I'm reading about this Bernie Sanders and his propositions,

and I can't understand why anyone with a bit of common-sense and who wants the US to achieve some kind of development as a nation won't vote for him.

I see that guy as the only option.

EDIT: Whoa! A lot of interesting and insightful answers. I think I have a better picture of these two guys now.

**Trump**: I see Trump's figure is being manipulated strongly by the media, with much of his comments being taken out of context. He's saying a lot of things that many americans want to hear.

Apparently there's a difference between his "show figure" and his actual positions, which are considered pretty traditionally American by many of you.

And a lot of comments refer to Trump's business achievements as something positive, skills that would be reflected in the country if he's elected.

I sense there's a feeling of overall dissatisfaction with Obama, may be helped by the social media.

I can't help but think that Trump's biggest strenght is pretty much being a big anti-Obama reaction in many ways: politically, socially and economically.

**Bernie**: Many of you said that you like Bernie's positions and that much of them should be good for the people, but the problem is they're pretty much utopic or unrealistic.

Others stated that his vision of the economy would harm America and that the fact that he doesn't have "real" achievements in politics or comparing to Trump, in any business at all,

is something pretty negative.

The bottom-line as I see it and that it was pointed out by some of you is that both of them are running heavily ideological campaigns, which makes them very similar characters,

each in their own way.
