The reason people get elected is to implement policy. Elections are not an end in themselves. While they are easy to report on, they are not substantive. The media obsession with the horse race specifically and elections in general is lazy, self-serving, and useless. These are not athletic competitions where "winning" is the sole goal. Elections are a means to policies, which are the goal. Focusing on elections while largely ignoring policy, as a huge percentage of media coverage does, is foolish.
Time spent this year fulminating over the latest faux-gaffe by a pretend candidate is wasted. I humbly suggest to those interested in politics that being led around by the nose by the media obsession with the presidential race is a waste of time, and a distraction from political issues that actually matter.
You will get more secret "free trade" deals under whomever wins. You will get further relaxation of banking regulations under whomever wins. You will get what those who buy politicians want regardless of what you voted for, or what the majority of the public prefers. And that's true regardless of which "choice" you make on election day. Thus, focusing on who gets elected is little more than a gladiatorial match for the Roman plebes. Entertaining blood sport, perhaps, but little more.
