Default Shall I be worried about who wins in november?

Hi, was hoping to get an opinion on something on this forum.

I am a british citizen and a GC holder. My fiance is a british citizen. The donald has planned to ban muslims and she happens to be one. I intended to sponsor her once married but comes november and donald wins. Do you think he will ban her and stop her from getting a spouse based GC? It is against the constitution to do such a thing but I am worried since there is such a clause in the immigration and nationality act.

Thank you.

Do you know anything about Mike Pence? I doubt if anything will happen to ban muslims, but who knows. I didn't think Brexit would happen either. The world is a very unpredictable place.

I would think it highly unconstitutional/unlikely/bollocks/all three.

Bottom line carry on as normal with your plans.

Not much, I know he is the Indiana governor but why do you ask? Trump recently said he won't ban muslims from Scotland, I am hoping that applies to England too even though they're the same country you never know what crap trump can come up with

I just did a quick search on Mike Pence and seems like he is running mate who also happens to oppose the ban but that was months ago I hope he hasn't changed his mind.

I am completely apolitical, on BOTH sides of the Atlantic, but I wonder if he WILL get elected. If I were a gambling man (well, I am, but on these things!), I would bet that the US is in for it's first female President.

Quite frankly, if Hillary and the Donald are the best the Yanks can offer to become leader of the free world, my lord, we're in trouble!!!

I think Donald is addressing the same or similar issues to the Brexit leave campaign. The polls say is about even running between Hillary and Don.

The horse race may look close but I don't think the electoral college will be.

There's this fantasy belief that the POTUS is somehow all-powerful. Hardly.

The Donald may actually win, but regardless of what he claims he'll do, there's this little thing called "congress" that gets in the way. Sure, he can execute "executive powers", but he needs to take a pretty light touch on that (and especially if it's unconstitutional or outright illegal), or else he faces certain impeachment.

Nobody of reasonable mind really wants Trump to win the election, but even if he does, he's never going to be able to impose the ridiculous crap he campaigns on. More likely, just a waste of four years.

if Hillary wins, may be interesting with May and Merkel also being women leaders of significant States.

The polls mostly leaned 2%-10% in favour of Remain. I suspect that there is, and will continue to be, a deficit in the poll support measured for Trump i.e. that actual support is greater than the polls indicate.

He's going to put some rustbelt states in play that were thought to be safe Dem/ Dem leaning. The choice of the Indiana governor as VP is a smart move for Trump.
