The Regret Election

The 2016 presidential election appears to be heading to a depressing contest. As of today, voters will be selecting between two candidates with higher unfavorability ratings than favorable.

Hillary Clinton’s average favorability rating, as maintained by the Huffington Post, is 54 percent negative and 42 percent positive. Donald Trump has a huge negative favorability, with a modern record for a near nominee of 62 percent unfavorable.

This will be a “regret” election, with voters choosing between not who they like the most, but who they have the least regret voting for.
