TKS Asks: What are your thoughts on the 2012 presidential election?
German teaching assistant Juliane Fricke: “In Europe, people are very interested in American politics, maybe even more than some Americans. The world has an eye on the U.S. because it’s one of the most important international players.”
Post-baccalaureate fellow Casey Samoore ’12: “It’s been filled with people being scared that the people they hate are going to be elected. And that’s the theme of the election this year — just fear that the other guy is going to win.”
Junior Josh Fishman: “This election is probably one of the most important we’ve had in a while. If Romney wins the election, then the country is going to a landslide and he’ll destroy the economy.”
Sophomore Joy Westerman: “How do I feel about the elections? Upset. It’s like choosing the lesser of two evils. Basically, I wish I could have better people to vote for.”
Junior Grant Lowe: “I was really disappointed in them after the first debate. I really expected more from both of them — and that’s coming from someone who’s not that big a fan of Romney.”
