Presidential elections rarely lack controversy but 2016 promises to be the most interesting contest in generations. Nominees Hillary Clinton (Democrat) and Donald Trump (Republican) attract partisan admiration and derision in almost equal measure and their emergence starkly illustrates the polarisation of American politics.
Clinton, who would become the first female president, is seen by many as untrustworthy, while controversies about Trump’s xenophobia, misogyny and inconsistency have stalked his candidacy without diminishing his appeal.
Dr Harry Bennett, Dr Simon Topping and Dr David Brockington discuss the election and the implications of either a Clinton or a Trump presidency on the very day of the election.
