Our analytics tell us that the LA Progressive has a following that is overwhelmingly well read, educated, and politically astute. We know our readers are likely to have watched both the Democratic and Republican conventions. Some of you probably watched everyday. You already know that Hillary Clinton will represent the Democrat Party in November as their nominee for President and Donald Trump will represent the Republican Party.
Now that it's all said and done and the two major parties have had their conventions and selected their nominees—what's next in this, the most unusual presidential campaign in recent history.

And you know that a large contingent of Bernie Sanders delegates walked out of the Democratic convention and that Nina Turner—a strong advocate for Bernie Sanders—was banned from speaking at the convention in a most humiliating and hurtful manner.
Have we ever had two people competing against each other to be president with lower favorability ratings? Many on both the Left and the Right say that Hillary Clinton can't be trusted, while Donald Trump is widely regarded as a know-nothing bully who was born on third base with a silver spoon in his mouth.
