Russian Media Wants Donald Trump To Win The U.S. Presidential Race
Washington Times: Donald Trump winning over Russians, Moscow-run media in U.S. presidential race
Donald Trump says he wants a better U.S. relationship with Russia, and the state-controlled media in Russia are rooting for him, too.
Although most Russians aren’t paying close attention to the U.S. presidential election, the majority of those who are following the campaign favor Mr. Trump, the GOP nominee, with their views shaped by positive portrayals in Russian media. As a result, they view Mr. Trump as a maverick, and they don’t like his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, who’s cast as a warmonger.

WNU Editor: I am in Moscow right now .... and yes .... Russian media, the pundit class, think tanks, Russian politicians, etc., they see better relations with a Donald Trump in the White House than a Hillary Clinton. But while almost everyone is saying that relations will be better if Trump is President, no one believes that he will win .... that the American media, the U.S. foreign policy establishment, the defense establishment, and the economic elites are firmly against him .... and they will influence a win for Hillary Clinton. What's my take .... never underestimate what happens in U.S. elections .... the debates and October surprises have yet to happen.
