    The election is almost here and – whether in debates or polls - American voters have been left with a clear winner, and it isn’t Donald Trump. The question now becomes will Trump drag down his party as he goes down in defeat.

    But we keep hearing about something that isn't just scary, it's utterly terrifying.

    This week the nation’s largest labor union, the National Education Association, kicked off its final election push with a campaign linking Donald Trump to an increase in bullying at schools.
