“[Voting for the first time] is exciting. It gets your more into politics, and it makes you more aware of the world around you because you have to be more aware of what’s going on in the world around you in order to be an educated voter. And I think that you can check voter turnout was lower this year than it was last election, you can see people were generally dissatisfied with the candidates. And on top of that, people were crossing lines because they were unhappy with the candidate on their side.

I think the general view of this election for Americans was that we had a Democratic president for the past eight years and after his first two years of a Republican House and now a Republican Senate, people want change and they can see that in Donald Trump as opposed to Hillary Clinton.”

“My feelings are a little bit of shock and honestly a little bit of fear. There was one candidate who really jeopardized some of the rights and freedoms that particular groups within our country are going to have, and for me prioritizing that above everything else is kind of why I’m a little bit shocked our country would go that route. I didn’t like how either one of them ran their campaigns. Speaking particularly to that I think that one of the things the Clinton campaign will look back on is they focused so much on how people were going to interpret the email scandal. so they didn’t do a lot of talking about that other than saying, ‘look at what Trump said.’”

“I am very happy with the result. I felt that Trump was going to win from the beginning. I was confident in him and never thought negatively about his chances. Hillary scared me a bit in the beginning but it all worked out in the end in Trump’s favor. I had hope in Trump because I am a Republican and he was our nominee, but mostly I’m just a big fan of Donald Trump and his policies. Make America great again!”
