So last night after I got out of work, I decided to ask a few of those youth, whom they were voting for and why. This is what they said:
Elijah - I voted for McCain because he wants to bring home the troops in a timely fashion so that they can be with their families.
Billy - I voted for McCain because I like him and I think he will fix the economy.
Michaela - I voted for McCain because he seems like a nice guy.
Bailey - I voted for Obama because he has a funny name!
Levi - I voted for Obama because that's the one I pointed to.
David - I voted for McCain because I like what he had to offer and I think the Republican Party name has gotten a bad rap because of Bush. A party shouldn't be dragged down because of 1 man.
Sarah - I voted for Obama because we don't need at least 4 more years of Republican ways.
So in the end, I was right. The youth don't really know why they voted for Obama, but who is bragging! McCain got 4 votes out of those polled and Obama got 3 votes. McCain won New Hampshire 4 years ago, but Obama won New Hampshire this time around and New Hampshire will be a blue state for the next 4 years. Oh well.
With this election coming to an end, I now know whom the 44th President will be and the final stamp to carve for my gathering in January. Barack Obama. I may not of voted for the guy, but I will support him in what he needs to do as President. He has lots of guts to run for the highest office, which can't be easy right now. The economy is in the toilet right now and there are 2 wars still going on. The only bright side right now, gas prices are down and in a few months, an unpopular president will be leaving the oval office.
