  1. (What's the most important issue to you this election season?)
  2. The most important issue to me right now is the economy that encompasses lot of different things.
  3. Right now as a college student it’s really hard to get by.
  4. Tuition is a small fortune, actually a large fortune to afford.
  5. There have been times where I have had to stop eating food just to afford rent ,
  6. or afford text books and all the other expenses that come with being a college student.
  7. (Are you hopeful about the future?)
  8. I'm honestly not hopeful about the future.
  9. I was talking to other people about the candidates that are running and people are saying it is the lesser of two evils.
  10. There's no person that people, or at least the people I talk to, people really like or that people are really going for.
  11. I think the election process is all screwed up. I don’t think it makes much sense – much logical sense.
  12. I don’t think the people that are running have a clear sense of what people need and they are very stuck in their ways
  13. and you can really try and address, you know, this type of person, this type of person living in the North East
  14. and someone living in the South and a really rich entrepreneur living in San Francisco.
  15. But it’s really hard to encompass everybody and get what everybody needs.
  16. And I think there needs to be a better electoral college or election system figures out a way to really address everyone.
  17. It seems like most candidates are really favourable towards the poor and they are trying to get the poor out of the poverty
  18. and lowering taxes and stuff like that.
  19. But there are others that are really focused on just benefiting the rich.
  20. And it feels like there is no system that really
  21. encompasses both and tries to help everybody.
  22. So , no, I don’t have lot of hope for the future.
