Blog Post 7

what questions do you have about this election?
  1. Who is going to win and by what margin?
  2. What is the voter distribution by age now compared to four years ago, 12 years ago?
  3. Why does the green party/independent party run when they will not likely win?

What makes you want to vote? I would like to say it’s so my voice can be heard but in reality, it's more like am voting for the person who shares most or some of my values. That makes me want to vote so that someone who does not share most of my values is not in charge of making decisions that could go against my values.

What makes you shy away from the voting booth? Going to the actual booth is a time-consuming event where I would prefer to avoid it and cast an early ballot. I understand that most people usually get the day off but there are some that do not so it can be taxing for them to vote on that day.  

Do you feel well informed about the issues and candidates? Yes. I keep up to date with current affairs in Washington and the United States regarding politics. What I like about the United States is that we have the freedom to find and search for mostly everything a candidate has done in while serving the public as well as the freedom to search public information regarding U.S. citizens like Trump.

Does this election draw you in or alienate you? This election draws me in by the sheer amount of craziness that is going on. I love to turn on the news and see what is happening in the elections it is like a soap opera unfolding every day. I like drama I guess, and I love to see the responses the candidates have to them.  


  1. Hi Gus,
    I think we can all agree on that one question of yours, which is who is going to win. With all of the rumors and issues that's been surfing the media, I wonder who the clear winner is.

  2. Hey Gus, I love that the election draws you in by the craziness that pops up on the television or in the media daily. It is so spot on with that. We are constantly discovering that Hillary is being further investigated by the FBI....a candidate running to run our own country, or Trump's own employees outing him as a businessman. He can't keep an multi billion dollar empire happy, how could he with his kind of platform keep the best interest and needs of his voters moving in the right direction?

  3. Hey Gus, Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. I enjoyed reading about your opinions and the way that you are thinking of this election.

    Take care, Megan
