I'm not going to weigh in on who is worse between the two. However, there is definitely more wrong with him as a candidate than people disagreeing with his opinions. At best, he is willing to say anything to get votes. This includes coming across as a sexist/racist. At worst, he is exactly as he portrays himself to be...

It almost sounds like you're saying the problem doesn't exist on WM or iOS. I can tell you that iOS comes with multiple apps I don't care about. I don't know enough about WM to make that claim. However, I do know that different people want different things. It wouldn't shock me if some people don't like all the stock apps for WM.

It's 2016 not 1916, there are consumer safety laws now, you can't get away with "it's your own damned fault, you were doing it wrong" anymore.

See, that's the problem with people. We honestly need to expect a certain level of competency from people. There is something to be said for safety features, but you need to set an expectation on the user as well. You cannot expect the company to cover for every possible idiot.

If the accident was preventable, the driver should of prevented it. They should be paying attention to the road and be in a position to respond. If it wasn't preventable by the driver, then the system is working at least as well as the driver in that situation. Either way, the system isn't responsible.

And for what it's worth, that doesn't mean the system couldn't/shouldn't be improved. It just means they didn't die because of the system.
