DUTCHESS COUNTY, N.Y. -- Let the political pundits say what they will about Republican Nominee Donald J. Trump and Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton. For Daily Voice readers, the Election 2016 decision comes down to two simple virtues: leadership and honesty.

In our most recent DV Decision poll, we asked what qualities you believe our next President should have. Thirty-four percent opted for leadership, 32 percent for honesty, 8 percent for diplomacy at 8 percent; and 7 percent each for temperament, government experience, and fresh perspective. Being plain spoken and direct got 5 percent.
