    Good question lol, I could easily see arguments for both. I'd almost call it a tie, but the possibility of a Trump presidency has far worse long term global ramifications than a failed olympics.

    I have to vote trump on this poll.

    Rio will at least slide back to being Rio after this... No clue where we will slide if we elect Trump.

    I went with Rio. While I can't stand the guy's politics, until the past 72 hours there were triumphs mixed in with the fails (like actually securing the nomination). The press from Rio has been uniformly bad.

    Trump, for the long term effects. Rio is just a failure, trying to out-do Montreal.

    Rio's fine. Brazil's problems are Brazil's problems, but as long as the Games go on fine (which they have, so far), then no worries.

    I was leaning heavily towards Rio for a few days but ended up going Trump.

    The situation in Rio is messed up, but there are also parts of it that are fine.

    Sure, there are so many dead fish floating in the water that it looks like Crocodile Dundee went into the bycatch business, but it's not like there are hypodermic needles littering the volleyball courts.

    On the other hand, I can't really find anything POSITIVE about the Trump campaign. I don't even think I can find anything NEUTRAL to say about the campaign, because despite the fact that I think it's best if the Republican party fracture and shatter completely, I'm not taking any JOY out of watching it happen.

    The olympics on the other hand, provide utterly AMAZING moments like this, in spite of all the horrid buildup:

    Interesting I did not know kicking was allowed in volleyball.

    The motto of the International Volleyball Federation, that “FIVB” logo you see on a large white screen, is “KEEP THE BALL FLYING.” One of the rule changes after the 1992 Olympics was to allow whole body contact.Aug 3, 2012

    Neither. Both achieved their goals.
