Television began changing things a lot. Nixon's lack of sweat guards lost him the presidency, and a new world opened up.
Today's primaries have taken the nomination out of the hands of the politicians and turned it into a phone in Mr/Miss/Ms/Mrs America contest.
Americans have a pretty peculiar fokokt idea of issues. In the previous presidential elections things like same-sex marriage, stem cell research and getting a Black man in the white house were the voters' priorities. Forget about economics and security.
The polls keep showing that Donald Trump is the most popular of the Republicans.

Things are getting more interesting in the Democratic Party, too, though they don't have a Trump. The Hillary machine is breaking down. Most of her supporters are sexists. Yes, that's what one should call voting for a person just because of the sex. Just like the Obama supporters are racist, since they chose him by color.
That's America in the 21st Century.
