Worst 2016 U.S. Presidential Candidates


The Top Ten

1 Donald Trump Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States. Born and raised in Queens, New York City, Trump received an economics degree from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 1968. In 1971, ...read more.

What's funny & ironic is that a lot of the people that hate him most are actually HELPING his campaign, & are too egotistical & stupid to even realize it. For example, those college kids bragging about how they 'Stopped Trump! ' from speaking at their college. And the protesters disrupting his speeches. Don't they get what they're causing to happen-they often get painted as these pro-censorship, anti-free speech, intolerant to anyone's views other than their own, overly sensitive overly idealistic types, so what do they do? Prove everyone right, by stopping a candidate from speaking and/or disrupting his events. So what happens is it makes the people already leaning towards Trump say 'SEE!?!?! ' and make them more determined than ever, & it makes some of those that are on the fence decide they're fed up with walking on eggshells. Just pisses me off because I really can't stand Trump, & these people that think they're stopping him somehow are not only accomplishing nothing, but they're ...more - aj555

First of all, this man's ego is too big. Especially for him to be going around saying all Mexicans deal drugs and rape the youth, and all Muslims plot against America. He's only adding more fuel to the fire. The racism is only the tip of the iceberg, I didn't even mention how he feels about debt, tax, gender equality, climate, citizen disabilities, and he even goes against Obama. I admit, Obama has done some wrong things as President, but sparking beef with him will only ruin Trump's reputation more. Someone needs to tell Trump it's not about how much money you have, it's about what you're going to do with it. One last thing: what's up with that toupee?

Now, no 2016 president is good. I sense 2016 is going to be a terrible year for America. But that's going to be a definite if Donald Trump stays in the lead. He's worse than Obama. At least Obama hid his absolute failure behind an attempt at being good. Trump? He's arrogant, racist, self-righteous, insensitive, and isn't afraid to show it. - WonkeyDude98

Actually, Bernie is quite possibly the best candidate we'll have in over a decade. - WonkeyDude98

Heck yes...I used to rate him second worst to Ted Cruz but now after he has done so many illegal things... - careyprice4mvp

2 Hillary Clinton Hillary Clinton Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician and a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in the 2016 election.

Please don't flip out but can someone please explain why all the hate for Hillary I don't support her but really what did she do?

Does anyone else notice that the two "worst presidential candidates" are the two that we have decided to have the best chance for getting elected now 2 weeks away from election. Man, america is screwed...

Lies about 3/4 of the things she says, denied her pneumonia, and her husband is a sick idiot. Her, Trump, or Sanders, regardless, will screw America. - Swellow

I hate Shillary, glad she won't be running in 2020.

3 Jeb Bush Jeb Bush John Ellis "Jeb" Bush is an American businessman and politician who served as the 43rd Governor of Florida from 1999 to 2007. V 2 Comments
4 Ben Carson Ben Carson Benjamin Solomon "Ben" Carson, Sr. is a retired American neurosurgeon and former candidate for President of the United States.

I feel like a lot of people think that because he is a brain surgeon that he will be smart enough to lead the country. There are several things wrong with this. First of all, you can know all there is to know about the human brain, but if you don't know about politics, how our government works or what our constitution actually means, you won't do a very good job. Second, this guy has all the common sense of a banana and all the sanity of a deranged clown. I mean.. he thinks the pyramids.. the damn pyramids.. were built to store GRAIN! For god's sake I could have proven him wrong when I was in first grade! EVERYONE knows that the pyramids were built as tombs! That's even dumber than the alien theory!

Shouldn't be here - Hiimme

5 Ted Cruz Ted Cruz Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz is an American attorney and politician; he was elected in 2012 as the junior United States Senator from Texas.

Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer.

Those of us from New Jersey don't even want him.

New Jersey is already f-ed up dude, why you have to go after the country? - Bboymakinwitthefrekfreak

9 Bobby Jindal Bobby Jindal Piyush "Bobby" Jindal is an American politician who served as the 55th Governor of Louisiana from 2008 to 2016, a former US Congressman, and former vice chairman of the Republican Governors Association.
10 Bernie Sanders Bernie Sanders Bernard "Bernie" Sanders is an independent American Senator from Vermont and was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

Say what you want about Bernie, but you'll have to admit that he's a kind person. He legitimately cares about the minority groups of America. Unlike some candidates, he wants to help people who aren't all white, male, cis, straight, and Christian.

Just as bad as Donald Trump. Supports loopholes used by gun companies. Social equality does not seem to be his top priority, as he does not bother to add any non-white people to his advertisements. He also voted to get rid of the automotive industry. While Sanders may attract people three times younger than him, most people who have been on this Earth for at least 35 years did not support him during the Democratic primaries. - seafowlomicron

Sanders voted for the auto bailout. Hillary SAID that he was against it, which was a lie. - Caleb9000

Bernie Sanders supporters do realize with all this free stuff, taxes are going to go up right? Money doesn't come out of nowhere, someone has to pay for it. - AnnaOfArendelle332

I'd rather have higher taxes than get utterly destroyed by medical bills, tuition, or any of the other really unforgiving expenses that these taxes would pay for. Of course it's not gonna be free, but for stuff like this, it's worth the cost. So yes, I still stand by Bernie's economic plans. - Zach808

Should be 2 - Hiimme
