MI First Election

Kathleen Riley: WKathleen Rileyhat are your thoughts about the election this year? And what are the key issues for you? How are some of the candidates getting younger voters?

I think that on both sides of the coin for both parties it is kind of crazy right now, especially since we have two people dominating in both political
parties. We have Cruz and Trump, which in my personal opinion are both insane. And then on the Democratic side, we have Clinton and Sanders, who I am personally a Sanders supporter, but there are also some good things that happen with Clinton. So it really just depends on how people show up for our primaries.

The presidential election is always very important but we are either going to see a very drastic change one way or a very drastic change the other way depending on what candidate wins. Foreign policy definitely, just straight forward honesty which kind of rules out Hillary. How our own Congress will be run, which anyone looks for and taxation that a lot of people have differences on. A lot of issues that have to deal with our home and how we will deal with the rest of the world as well. I am pretty decided on Trump. I have a respect for Bernie Sanders just because he knows what he wants, which you can’t say for all of them. However, I really do favor Trump, I mean he knows what he wants and never put his money where his mouth is. When he says he’s going to write a book he damn writes a good book. When we say he’s going to build a multibillion dollar corporation, he does it. And if he says he is going to make America great again, I believe it to be true.

This is going to be the first presidential election that I am voting for, which I think is cool because I was not 18 for the last election. I still have not decided who I am going to vote for. I think some of the things Trump says is scary, I think the idea of him being president is a little bit scary but I guess we will see what happens. I think that Bernie appeals to a lot of young people because he is interesting and his ideals are to make everybody happy and whether or not that happens, I think a lot of young people want to be happy. As of now he is promising that.
