According to a February 2013 article in the Huffington Post, just under 60% of Americans who were able to vote in the 2012 Presidential elections voted.
I think this year will be different.
Saturday Night Live, as they usually do when it comes to politics and major elections, hit the nail on the head last night.
During the Weekend Update segment, cast member Pete Davidson in a segment entitled “Resident Young Person” was asked what he thinks about Donald Trump and the possibility of seeing him in the White House come 2016.
Davidson stated during the segment that the thought of seeing Donald Trump in the White is enough of a reason to go to the voting booth.
I think Donald Trump as President scares a lot people, not just the younger voters.
Whether or not he wins is to be seen. But if his presence in the race is enough to get America off their behinds and vote, then maybe there is a method to the madness.
