IMMIGRATION

THE ISSUE: There are about 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US. And millions of opinions on how the US should handle it.

HILLARY: We needed a path to citizenship yesterday.

TRUMP: We needed a big, beautiful wall on the US-Mexico border yesterday.

WHAT ELSE: Immigration reform is something every presidential wannabe has promised for decades. But it’s so politically touchy that nobody can get it done.

ABORTION

THE ISSUE: Shmashmortion: welcome to one of the most emotionally and politically charged issues out there.

HILLARY: The choice to get an abortion is between women and their doctors.

TRUMP: Like Ronald Reagan, I am pro-life with exceptions.

WHAT ELSE: The Supreme Court just gave its biggest abortion ruling in decades. And it came in the middle of 2016.

CIVIL RIGHTS

THE ISSUE: Civil rights is always an important election issue. This year, Black Lives Matter is in the spotlight.

HILLARY: Focus on changing laws and systems to level things out.

TRUMP: ”All Lives Matter,” and that should be the theme of this country.

WHAT ELSE: The Black Lives Matter movement is 2016’s symbol for things that have been frustrating the black community, and people around the country, for some time.

CLIMATE CHANGE

THE ISSUE: Climate change has been an issue for decades. Only recently did the US join the squad of world leaders trying to do something about it.

HILLARY: The US needs to be the world’s clean energy superpower.

TRUMP: Climate change doesn’t exist in any major fashion.

WHAT ELSE: Who the US elects to be in charge will have to deal with climate change. The question is how.

GUN CONTROL

THE ISSUE: Americans are the most heavily armed people in the world. Depending on whom you ask, this is either ‘great’ or ‘just...great.’

HILLARY: Time for universal background checks and closing loopholes that let the wrong people carry a gun.

TRUMP: We don’t have a gun problem. We have a mental illness problem.

WHAT ELSE: Gun culture is a huge part of American life. But most in the US agree it’s time for some kind of change.

EDUCATION

THE ISSUE: Many kids aren't getting the education they need. And the ones who get past college have to deal with someone named Sallie Mae.

HILLARY: Common Core is the right direction. And we’ve gotta make college more affordable.

TRUMP: Common Core is a disaster. And the US shouldn’t make money off student loans.

WHAT ELSE: Ed reform in the US is a mess. And the last two presidents have tried – and mostly failed – to tackle the problem.

FOREIGN POLICY / ISIS

THE ISSUE: There have been just a few geopolitical fires over the last eight years. Whoever takes over next has a lot of work to do.

HILLARY: Stay the Obama course.

TRUMP: Time to step up our game and temporarily close our borders to countries with a history of terrorism.

WHAT ELSE: Hillz and Trump are often on opposite sides of the foreign policy spectrum. Americans have a yuuuge choice to make at the polls.

ECONOMY

THE ISSUE: The US economy has gone from worse to less-worse. Not a good lawn sign slogan.

HILLARY: Cut taxes for the middle class. Create jobs by spending on infrastructure and clean energy.

TRUMP: Cut new trade deals to level the playing field. Sign major tax cuts without changing programs like Medicare and Social Security.

WHAT ELSE: The economy’s doing better, but the numbers don’t match how a lot of people are feeling about their paychecks and job choices.
