We are still over a week away from the first national convention by one of the two major parties and four months away from the General Election on November 8.
At this point in the race for the White House what is on the mind of voters? Pew Research set out to find out.
What was found is that most Americans are not happy with the current state of the race nor with the choices being offered up for their consideration.
When it comes to the question of interest of which party wins, a big majority of Americans think it matter and even more Americans are or have been thinking about the election.
Yet this election cycle more people are voting against a candidate than they are planning on voting for a candidate.
Of the two major candidates, Clinton and Trump, which is better suited to deal with issues?
Clinton has the edge over all, but not by that much. The exception is primarily dealing with race relations, which are back in the spotlight after two police shootings resulting in the death of two black men in two days.
All the rhetoric this campaign cycle is changing the way Washington conducts business to be more in tune with working men and women.
But which of the two major players will change Washington?
With the conventions starting on July 18 for Republicans to be followed soon after by the Democrats, all the talk is about uniting the party behind the presumptive presidential nominees.

From the Cornfield, I am not yet sure for whom I will cast a vote.
I am certain there are two candidates I will not throw my support. I disagree on too many issues and have too many concerns about one of those candidates.
This has me considering two other candidates.
How much faith do I really have in our system of checks and balances to rein in anyone in the Oval Office attempting to push the envelope too far?
Am I willing to vote for a candidate, who most likely has no chance of winning, only to maintain my integrity?
I am a firm believer in voting or keeping my mouth shut for the next four years. Thus, I will cast a ballot for someone – not sure whom.
