I think I would rather not.

No offence intended like
Unfortuantly I have been seeing a lot about the US elections on there and once Youtube knows you are watching about that subject, Their algorythems go to work and show you videos you "Might like because you've watched something similar" so up she popped!

Tend to think Jinxy is right that it has boosted Trump.
It's like the time Obama rocked up here ordering us to vote Remain otherwise we'd go to the back of the queue.

That was worth a few hundred thousand votes to the Leave vote.

If that was repeated in the swing states, especially for the electorial college votes that could be the difference between Trump getting a 2nd term or not. As we all know now in the US, The popular vote doesn't really matter.

Yep, imagine Joe the plumber from Oshkosh, Wisconsin tuning in to see MeeGain and a toffee nosed English Prince telling him where his allegiances should lie. If he was previously on the fence, I imagine he'd be now getting of his arris and putting his X against Trump.

Had not realised that the vile Katie Hopkins had rocked up over there.

Harry's dopey observations/interventions have apparently gone down like a cup of cold sick across the political spectrum in Uncle Sam; or so I heard on the wireless. Tend to think Jinxy is right that it has boosted Trump.
Don't be daft. The average Joe in the US won't even know who Harry is. They're tiny fish in a big pond over there . No way would Harry's comments affect the vote.

Yep, Royals are neutral as should keep it that way, As for Ms Hopkins, Just look on Youtube, That's where they are.
The royals shouldn’t rape children but nothing happens about that. Stands to reason that remaining neutral won’t happen when clearly they can do what they want.

Au contraire. There is a fascination with our Royal family in Uncle Sam. Even something as inconsequential as Princess Eugenie’s wedding was the most viewed TV item over there when it happened.
