The United States presidential election of 2016 was the 58th quadrennial U.S. presidential election and took place on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. Actor Robert Downey Jr. became discouraged with both Republicans and Democrats and decided to run for president. Meanwhile, Democrats nominated Former Secratary of State Hillary Clinton of New York. Democrats expected to smash the whoever the GOP's nominee was. However, Republicans nominated New Jersy Governor Chris Christe who gained much respect in many typically liberal, northern states which gave Christie a major advantage. Christie had originally narrowly defeated the front runner, young Senator Marco Rubio for nomination. Clinton was in the lead in the Latino vote up until Christie chose Rubio for Vice President. Christie took the lead when he smashed Hillary in all three debates, and when Rubio smashed California leuitenant governor Gavin Newsom (Clinton's VP nominee) in the Vice Presidential debates. The election was close, but Christie pulled out an overwhelming victory.
