Our Future is Ahead: US Elections are Right Around the Corner
February 17, 2020
The 2020 elections are coming up on November 3rd. A new president and a vice president can be elected or incumbents can be re-elected. There are twelve prior runners and out of those twelve, one will be selected. As we know, Trump will be running for the 2020 election; however, it’s been known that Trump has been impeached by the House of Representatives. This has only happened three times in history. The Senate is holding a trial to decide whether to remove the president from office. Trump was accused of quid pro quo, with this in mind it begs the question of how is this going to affect his campaigning.
The majority of students at Turlock High seem to have little to no interest in the election. However, Jaden and Anika say that they do care because “It is our future and we want the best for our country”. Everyone has different opinions about who is going to win, but there is no guarantee on who will win the election. The runners gave some great speeches to persuade the voters to vote for them. We all want the best for our country but there is disagreement which president will win. When it comes to politics, everyone has strong opinions and beliefs. There are no right or wrong answers for the predictions. We now have to wait to see who will become our new president and vice president.
