Scott Stiegler from New Mexico's KKOB radio station gave insight into the upcoming presidential election

Radio presenter Scott Stiegler has warned that the 'American public's anger and frustration' with the Obama administration might result in a 'rise up' against the elite.

The race to the White House is now coming to a head, with Hillary Clinton now looking the likely candidate for the Democratic Party nomination, ahead of her rival Bernie Sanders.

Donald Trump has been the presumed candidate for the Republican Party nomination for a couple of weeks and would go head-to-head with Hillary for the top job in The White House.

Stiegler, who works for KKOB radio station in Albuquerque in New Mexico, explained why it's looking more and more likely that the race for the presidency will be between Clinton and Trump.

"I would be very surprised if something happened to upend one of those two candidates," he told George Galloway. "I'm sure there's movements afoot – especially on the Republican side – but I don't see this happening. 

"The outcry would be huge at this point."

The broadcaster pointed out that the mood of the American public might result in an unexpected result in the election, similar to the surprise at the UK's shock vote to leave the European Union last week.

"What we're seeing across the globe is people rising up and saying, 'we want our country to be our country,'" he added. "There are enough of those people out there that if you push aside their viability, there would be a push back. 

"It wouldn't be productive one way or the other. I would not undersell the American public's anger and frustration with the government as it is.

"There's a significant number of people who want to see change."
