We asked you your thoughts on the 2016 US election.

Who do you want to win? Where will you be watching? Here is what you said:

Some of you are Team Hillary:

"DEFINITELY Clinton! Trump is arrogant, has no Class! He may be wealthy but money does not buy class. Ugh!!" - J. Riemer

I would like Clinton to win. Donald has proven to be a racist abusive thug. – A Heynes

"I will be following from my phone . History was made when Obama took office. History will be made when Hillary receives a baton from Barack Obama. 100% behind Hillary Clinton" - S. Mazibuko

"Hillary Clinton is my choice. The world would be safer if she wins. She has more experience." – Wilsongezane

"I have watched the US presidential election from the primaries to the  debates, listened to the interviews and can only say that this election for the world’s most powerful position has been – to say the least – disgusting.

I’m horrified that Americans and American  women in particular are thinking to vote for such a revolting specimen as trump – surely they cannot believe that his bigotry (misogyny, Islamophobia, racism etc) will simply disappear should he be elected to office!

What on earth is wrong with the world that we find it acceptable to have a Zuma, Putin, Le Pen, Farage or Trump as head of state?

Is Clinton flawed – of course she is as she is first and foremost a politician. Her flaws however pale into insignificance compared to the seriously revolting specimen we see in trump!" - Dock in the Bay

"I will be watching from Tzaneen - Limpopo. I wish the very best to madam Hillary Clinton to win the presidential race." - S. Abdallah

"I watched the 2007/08 and 2011/12 US elections but this time around it's ludicrous. I am convinced though that Hillary Clinton will win. Not because she's a woman but she's got all the credentials to be the US President." - Z. Mbekeni 

And some of you are Team Trump:

"I will most likely follow it on News24 as I'm working.

The Candidate I will want to win. Definitely Donald Trump. Every single person (has) their own skeletons in their closet. Donald is open about it. Clinton hides hers. What else will she hide? Just saying." - RaggiesFishing

"Trump!! Or else as big as America are they will follow the same path as South Africa with a corrupt goverment destoying their economy." - B. Lewies

"I trust that the Americans will make the correct decision and vote for Donald Trump." - P. Chinchen

"If Clinton wins, the Elite will accelerate their plans of destruction of the world, as it'll start with world war 3 with Russia. But I'm sure that she'll win. Which isn't my wish." - R. Matanda

"TRUMP must win otherwise we'll have WW3 on our hands soon!!" - E.Lotter

And some of you really don't want either to win:

"I want no one to win. Why, because this is another puzzle in the end times that only God will foreseen..." - B. Shoeman.

"Is there no any other candidates than the two (Mrs Hillary & Mr Trump)? I think neither of them fits for presidency" - D. Bebeda
