Trump is not the problem.
In regard to the 2016 presidential election, the problem is not the candidacy of Donald Trump. The problem is the American citizen who would waste his or her vote and vote for a clown just to vote against Hillary Clinton.
The problem is the uniformed citizen who believes they only have candidates from the two major parties to choose from to represent in their government.
The problem is a free press that fails to inform the electorate that they have more then just the Democrats and Republicans to choose from.
The solution would be a press that informs the body politic of all the parties and candidates they have to choose from and lets the people make a fully informed decision as to whom to vote for.
