When it all boils down, the campaign of 2016 will be like most others.
Are you happy with the course of the country?
If you are, you'll vote for Hillary Clinton to continue policies of the Obama administration.
If you are not, then Donald Trump will get your attention - and likely your vote.
Do you think the majority of people are happy with their circumstances this year?
Many are not happy.
That's Trump's opportunity.
The Clinton team must defend against multiple areas - employment, prosperity, international relations - where people are uneasy and scared.
They'll ask for Trump's answers to solve these problems - highlighting the concern and giving Trump a chance to offer better options.
Will Trump's options work?
We can't tell until he's in office.
