I made this thread 7 months ago and tried to see who the userbase believed in politically back then. My results were "84%" with Sanders yet also "74%" with Trump. I now went back to that saved page to see how things have shifted. This means it would be like I took the exact same quiz in the same way again. The results now would be 78% Clinton and 49% Trump (http://www.isidewith.com...).

What's your opinion on candidates keeping their policies straight throughout their campaigns? Can they actually be trusted? Has the candidate you supported changed in a way you don't like? Discuss.

Hillary wants to bring in an army of military aged men that believe wmen are 9th class citizens and see gays as less than that. When I lived in the region being gay got you strung up. Women had no voice, no rights, they were cattle. And if you dare challenge Hillary, she tries overshouting that you are a racist or a bigot. No. We are "truth livers", and the truth is? Syrians who have been bombed into oblivion that hated you pre bombings is suicide and completely mindless. People of like mind tried to warn Angela Merkel in Germany. She brought them in and in droves whining and pleading the Germans to take in the migrants. It wound up with a rape epidemic, her people were under siege, and over 2,000 sexual assaults and rapes were reported in Cologne in one single night. Liberals have went mad and become blind and refuse to listen to any logic, or anyone who actually understands the culture or the situation. It's never about doing the right thing with Hillary. Never is. Never was. And never will be. She just needs more migrants to stabelize the liberal vote even at the stake of the safety of women.

I think you responded in the wrong thread.

Candidates changing their minds here and there over years is fine, although I frown upon people who have a long standing record of following, jumping onto the bandwagon of the trends that were unpopular but led to great things. Not a deal breaker at all, just make a mental check, and if they can sincerely explain their position rather then a generalized political spiel that is something that can make me more comfortable that their position is genuine and not just something they have to do to get my vote.

Changing your mind with, heavy, thought out explanation during the primary election can be acceptable at times, but its an uphill battle to prove who they actually are for me, and I generally consider it as if the candidate had no opinion whatsoever to begin with. They automatically "lose" whatever that category is if the other candidate has something, anything, worth having, and the best they can do is not be considered worse.

Changing ones mind from the primaries to the general election....I'm just done. Its over for them. Its similar to lying on your resume. If I catch it, it gets thrown out.

That's how I filter out the bad ones before heavily researching considerable options.
