Learning more about politics and the presidential candidates can be difficult. I have viewed the websites of four presidential candidates. These are Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, and Ted Cruz. Below are minor details and information about the candidates. Each candidate’s page opened to a donation site, allowing you to skip to their page if you didn’t want to donate.

Democrat Hillary Clinton’s website includes a very detailed biography that talks about her life before and up to this year, and tidbits about Bill Clinton as well. It begins by talking about some of the things that she has accomplished “—but the first thing her friends and family will tell you is that she’s never forgotten where she came from or who she’s been fighting for.”

Republican Donald Trump’s website opens to his motto, “Make America Great again.” Under the “About” tab explains his accomplishments and a bit of family information. His “About” page also mentions his presence on social media and how he uses it to “… educate the public on the failures of the Obama administration.”

Republican Ted Cruz’s website has a “Meet Ted” tab that will lead you to little information about him, but if you want a biography you can download it. His page talks a lot about repealing Obamacare and “…to stop President Obama’s illegal and unconstitutional executive amnesty, and to defend life, marriage, the First Amendment, the Second Amendment, and our entire Bill of Rights. And most important, he’s kept his promise to speak the truth and do what.”

Democrat Bernie Sanders’s page is mainly about how he helps working families, and the growing gap between rich and poor. It also includes some information about his family, his birthplace and where he has gone to school. There is also a timeline that you can open, dating from early years (September 1941), to May of 2015. From his page, “Bernie has been called a ‘practical and successful legislator’ and he was dubbed the ‘amendment king’ in the House of Representatives for passing more amendments than any other member of Congress.”
