CARNELIAN BAY, Calif. — This week’s question: Who is your early pick to win the 2016 presidential election?

Here are answers, as asked Monday in Carnelian Bay:

Gary Kaufman, locksmith, Tahoe Vista: “I’m going to say Hillary (Clinton). I want a woman president.”

Adam Morales, retired, Carnelian Bay: “Bernie Sanders, because he’s got the momentum, and he’s been saying the right things for a long time and people are finally listening.”

Merrill Mueller, contractor, Kings Beach: “I think Ted Cruz is going to do it. … He’s up there with Trump right now, and also, I support him because he’s conservative.”

Stacy Koeff, bartender, Kings Beach: “I guess I’d go with Bernie Sanders if he does a good presidential campaign. He started off pretty weak, and he’s come up quite a bit in the polls. I think he makes some valid points … (and) could get a large basis of people on his side.”
