You forgot one. Should a government official be able to use a private server in a bathroom for conducting state business? :p

I suppose that one can be stretched into a social issue. They do have other categories like 'domestic policy' ROTBFL.

Compromises are going to have to be made on things. Like I understand that gays have a hard time with hospital visitation and such things that married people take for granted. If we reformed the tax code we could eliminate a lot of the tax problems with married and unmarried people. I personally think that the govt shouldn't be in the marriage business at all. To much abuse. But then that would open up another whole can of worms.

Let's get off the personality for a while and look at which issues they both agree and disagree on.
Here is a list to help facilitate the discussion. Remember, issues only.

some of these don't even seem to be that accurate...

trump has recently said abortion laws have to be kept as they are...which is effectively pro abortion...

trump is also on record as saying that anyone making gay marriage an issue any more is doing it for political reasons and implying that the supreme court ruling has settled the matter... he has also said very positive things about individual gay marriages that he was personally familiar with...

at best trump's position on those two issues would more accurately be categorized as 'ambiguous'

as for hillary clinton...i kind of doubt she would demand that a muslim grocery store owner comply with a request from a customer for pork chops or something...

so that would be an ambiguous issue for her...

Can you give some citations? I did what I could.
Or better, a more accurate survey.
