The 2016 Presidential Election is steadily headed this way. On November 8th, Americans will vote for the next president. The candidates who are currently in the race are Donald Trump (Republican Party), Hillary Clinton (Democratic Party), Gary Johnson (Libertarian Party), and Jill Stein (Green Party).
Not only are registered voters aware of the race, but several local youths are as well. Senior Jack Drushal is one of the many youths who has been keeping up with the election.
“I think Hillary has a big advantage in the election because of the way almost all media is liberal news.”
Junior Jessica Walker disagrees. “Trump [has a distinctive advantage of winning] because he is appealing to the masses with what they want,” Walker said.
As for now, it’s still anyone’s race. Decide for yourself who will win the election November 8th at the polls. Every vote matters.
