Connecticut ready to vote
At a local polling location in Connecticut, I asked a few
voters about the 2012 Presidential election.
The majority of voters said that they were relieved and happy about it being the end of the election. They emphasized that they were tired of being bombarded with negative commercials. Some of the comments included, “I am happy because there will be no more phone calls and obnoxious commercials,” and “I love that it’s over, no more commercials!”
Voters also shared their opinions about how things would end up after the election. A few of people said that the economy would stay the same. Others were even more negative and felt that we are in such a deep problem, that things are unlikely to change.
However, two thirds of the voters believe that the economy will improve and thought that the future holds promise.
[Editor's note: Barack Obama was projected as the winner of Connecticut earlier tonight. Stay tuned to scholastic.com/election for the final vote totals.]
