As many may know, there’s a presidential race going on in America. Likely one of the most entertaining races of all time, the top contenders for the Republicans are Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich. The top contenders for the Democrats are Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Recently, Donald Trump has been winning state primaries. The Democratic race has been more intense than expected; it has Hillary Clinton worried about what she thought was a her sure Democratic nomination. Senator Bernie Sanders is doing what many people thought wasn’t possible. Right now, Clinton may have a lead in delegates, but Sanders is close behind her. According to popular opinion, Clinton is cruising her way towards the Democratic nomination, but there are still 2,042 delegates up for grabs and Sanders doesn’t see an exit out of this race. Both top contenders, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, may need to think twice if they really believe they’re going to be the ones with the nominations of their parties.
Democracy can be really confusing to the youth and most people just don’t care about politics, believing their vote won’t make a difference. When there thousands, or even millions of capable voters not voting, their absence won’t make as much of a difference as if they were to go out there and vote. Almost all candidates running right now are dependent on the youth vote because it makes that much of a difference in a close race. It shows who’s one step closer to winning that state and even the nomination. This is why it is especially important that young adults register and go out and vote when the California primary comes on June 7th. Candidates like Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton will be holding rallies for everyone to go out there and vote. With an election with such high stakes and many people who never voted before voting, every vote counts towards whom America believes should be the next president. Adults who are over the age of 45 believe that everyone should vote and those who are under the age of 30 are twice as likely to believe that those who should go out and vote should be informed. With the internet and social media, it is fairly easy to find information on these candidates and do research on who deserves your vote. The California primary is a make or break decision for these candidates and it’s highly important that those who are eligible get informed, choose who they believe is the right candidate, register to vote and make a difference.
