New Reuters/Ipsos poll shows voters choosing to vote against, rather than for

The candidates likely voters are backing in the upcoming presidential election appear to be Not Donald Trump and Not Hillary Clinton.

That's according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released Thursday, which looks at a general election hypothetical matchup between Clinton and Trump, and found the Democrat leading the Republican 45 to 36 percent.

But nearly half (47 percent) of those who said they'd support Trump said it was because they don't want Hillary Clinton to win. That motivation was echoed on the Democratic side—nearly half (46 percent) of those who said they'd vote for Clinton said it was because they don't want Trump to win.

In comparison, 43 percent of those who said they'd vote for the billionaire real estate mogul said it was because they support most of his political positions; just 40 percent of those who said they'd vote for the former secretary of state were compelled by her political positions.

The results are not surprising, as FiveThirtyEight noted in a headline Thursday: "Americans' Distaste For Both Trump And Clinton Is Record-Breaking."

The sick thing is that we have a Candidate that Progressives Independents and even some republicans can enthusiastically vote for, but the machine is still doing everything it can to prevent the nation from having the opportunity. As a Nation, it's suicidal
