All the polls support Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 Presidential Race over her GOP opponent Donald Trump. But not everything is sunshine and rainbows for the ex Secretary of State, for the e-mail controversy still goes on. The FBI director James Comey made a historic statement yesterday when he said that his bureau had concluded that although no charges ought to be brought to the case, the democratic politician was, to his eyes, "extremely careless in her handling of very sensitive, highly classified information."
Thankfully Americans will not have a criminal leader, just an extremely careless one.
Four months before the election, forecasts show Hillary Clinton as the likely (and some say inevitable) winner of the 2016 general election, putting the likelihood of her winning at 77 percent. This percentage dwarfs that of her opponent Donald Trump, that has a 23% winning chance, despite all the media coverage and attention he has received over the last year. Clinton is thought to garner 342 electoral votes to Trump's 195.
However, Hillary is facing harsh criticism both from fellow democrats and republicans because of the media backlash that caused her handling classified information through e-mail when she was Secretary of State. Long story short, it was discovered that she indeed handed over confidential information, which goes against what she had said previously (she denied all of this).
A year-long investigation has been less harmful to Clinton than Trump's tongue to himself.
So even though she is winning, her reputation has been tarnished tremendously (the FBI director went as far as calling her "extremely careless") and nobody knows how this is going to affect her campaign. Nevertheless, she has been endorsed by many influential politicians and public figures (the most recent of them being no other than the current president Barack Obama). What do you think is going to happen? Is this going to have such a negative impact on her candidature as to make her lose against Trump?
