USA election run up – what do you think?

February 8, 2016 - 1 minute read

In the run up to the 2016 US elections, voters are currently choosing the Republican and Democrat nominations (if you’re not up to speed, take a look here). It’s a fiercely contested race on both sides: the Republicans have several choices, and on the Democrat side there are Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

One of the big names has been Donald Trump, whose forthright and often controversial views hit headlines frequently. He’s certainly polarising – but what do you think? How much do you know about each candidate’s policies, and why do you think one will win over another?

Here are a couple of sites that might help you find out more about the candidates and their policies – as well as who’s predicted to win!
