As the U.S. presidential election is finally over we can finally stop digging through the splinters at the bottom of this particular vomit filled political barrel and admit that both Clinton and Trump were a bit rubbish weren’t they.
Yes the 2016 Presidential race has been such a cluster fuck that describing it as an omnishambles would be giving the candidates too much praise, and I’m not the only one who thinks so.
Hilary the hypocrite and Donald the trump are officially the least popular candidates to run for the Oval Office since records began.
According to the lovely folks over at the i100, data gathered by Gallup and made into a line graph (one of the three things to do in the digital world) by Statista proves mathematically the current candidates are the most unpopular since 1956.
It kind of explains why Hilary and Donald were so close in so many states, the people are trying to keep them out of power out of sheer hatred.
As things stood last night Donald was apparently more hated than Hilary but he still one which we’ll count as another strike against polls which had previously promised Brexit wouldn’t win, the lying bastards.
For the record 36 per cent of those polled found Trump favourable, compared to the 47 per cent who didn’t find Clinton detestable.
Oh 2016, what a time to be alive!
More of a concept than a journalist, Tom Percival was forged in the bowels of Salford University from which he emerged grasping a Masters in journalism.
Since then his rise has been described by himself as ‘meteoric’ rising to the esteemed rank of Social Editor at UNILAD as well as working at the BBC, Manchester Evening News, and ITV.
He credits his success to three core techniques, name repetition, personality mirroring, and never breaking off a handshake.
