    Will Black Voters Save Joe Biden's Presidential Campaign?

    Will Black Voters Save Joe Biden's Presidential Campaign?

    Joe Biden's hopes to become President were always dependent on his ability to capture a high percentage of the black vote. With the earliest contests in the Democratic Primary process taking place in Iowa and New Hampshire with minimal black presence and the recent Nevada caucus where black voters are heavily outweighed by whites and Hispanic voters. The February 29th South Carolina Primary will be the first opportunity to see if black voters will be the firewall Biden desperately needs to stay a factor in the race to become the Democratic nominee. Bernie Sanders has taken a commanding lead in the race percentage wise, although the states having input thus far only represent 2% of the delegates to be awarded. Three days after South Carolina comes Super Tuesday; if Biden can't slow down Sander's momentum, he may well be finished by next week, unless black voters rush in to save the day.

    Millennial's'​Not Active In Local Politics

    The voter turnout rate among 18-25 years old have continued to be lower than other age groups. Young people show no involvement when it comes to politics, some people argue that young people are not interested in politics. However, that is not the case; it is due to our politicians, ignoring the youth. Voting is used to express a particular issue or course of action. It enables people to select there own government; it also allows citizens to choose their own representatives. In the 2012 Presidential Election, about 62% of people had costed there votes. However, in the 2014 Midterm elections only 42% of Americans had voted. (McElwee 2018). This clearly shows that the turnout rate is generally low then presidential elections. The reason why the youth should vote is that they can make a difference in this country, by simply showing up at the polls. Suffering a major disengagement of youth from politics; it is crucial to educate our youth, get them involved, and explain to them how there political participation can make a difference.

    Do you recollect the first time you voted in the United States? For me, the booth not so updated as now even so I enjoyed casting my vote. Did you have an issue? Yes, I did. Without realizing the situation, I wanted some services to continue. I am about to enter the workforce and I do not want high taxes either. Democracy was high. People favored them or needed a Democrat to be elected into office. Challenge is good. However, sometimes you hear others need a break. How will they break even if can’t make your wages? I returned home proud as well as relieved after casting my ballot. At this time, my father seen hard times therefore I wanted him to beat the odds. Besides, he worked in a Foundry and cars he helped build still in demand today.

    The UK's Voting Record

    The UK's Voting Record

    The forthcoming General Election here in the UK on 12th December 2019 is one of the most important this country has had to endure let alone suffer. Aren’t they all? BREXIT has dragged on for over three years without any sign of a conclusion. The political system is paralyzed. Put those two elements into a constitutional petrie dish and there is bound to be a growth of that most dangerous of political viruses; boredom.

    It Counts but It Makes No Difference!

    It’s often been debated whether voting carries the impact necessary to have a significant effect on the outcome of any given subject. Voting generally speaking is an effective resolution for relatively small matters to be resolved in which the information is simple enough for people to fully understand what it they are voting for.
