Personally I will be voting 3rd party. Which party doesn't really matter. (though im sure people who know me can guess)

As I see it, Trump is the result of the GOP establishment intentionally dumbing down its base electorate for years so as to continue getting carte blanche to continue bad policy.

Once a critical mass of stupidity was reached, it was a matter of time before someone else swooped in and proved more adept at pulling the emotional levers of an ignorant and unthinking electorate.
