Donald Trump has won the US elections and will be moving into the Oval Office at the White House. He will become the 45th President of the United States. Many were shocked with the results today as not many people saw Trump actually winning. Up to the presidential debate, Trump was clearly the underdog. While the world was abuzz with US elections, Starts at 60 today ran an opinion poll to see just who the over-60 community would prefer to lead as President of the United States. The question was “Who do you think would make a better president: Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump or Michelle Obama? The Poll results show that although Michelle Obama wasn’t even a candidate in this election, 82.9 per cent readers think that the First Lady would be the best person to take the role as president. When it comes to Donald Trump and Hillary, the reader poll revealed similar results to the US election results – Trump beat Clinton.
In the poll, 13.6% respondents think Trump would make a better president and Hillary Clinton only managed to attract a small 3.5% vote.
69 per cent of respondents were female, 30 per cent were male and one per cent did not disclose that information.
While a majority of respondents chose Michelle, the lack of support for Hillary begs the question: Does the over-60 not have confidence in Hillary to lead the country? Is it because she is a woman? According to one respondent, Lynne McGrail,”Hilary is downright corrupt in fact most people just don’t realise how much.” Hillary’s e-mail scandal left a big impression on a lot of people.
Facebook use Valerie June Bush said, “When she became Secretary of State in 2009, Clinton set up a private server for her emails instead of using the official government system.
“When an investigation was carried out, Clinton claimed no email she sent or received through the server had been classified.
“The FBI investigation later concluded this was not true, accusing Clinton and her aides of being “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information”.
“Now their are six other Americans who are in jail for doing less then she did, such as navy machinist who took some photos of a nuclear submarine and was given 12 months jail?”
