    FYI: Vote-Shaming Is Not a Winning Strategy

    There’s an argument circulating on social media that if we don’t vote for Joe Biden, we may as well be voting for Trump. It’s used as a lesser of two evils scare tactic to guilt-trip people into voting “Blue No Matter Who” in November.

    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.
