With the presidential election approaching, several people in the LIU Post community are preparing to cast their vote.
“It’s a joke to me. If I were to vote, it would probably be for Hillary. I watched the first debate, and I don’t think everything was properly addressed. I thought it was argumentative, and a lot of back and forth. Nothing was directly answered.” - Saba Khan, Senior, Psychology Major
“Generally, I think that the presidential season is very polarized and embarrassing in many ways. I think that this campaign season is too full of insults and not full [of] enough policy. I find that very disappointing.” - Katherine Hill-Miller, Professor of English
“It’s ridiculous how two people can’t come together on one view, and how unpresidential Trump is compared to Hillary. Trump is eager to poke at the things in her personal life and the mistakes she [has] made.” - Marcello Tripoli, Freshman
“Honestly I don’t think either of the candidates are capable of serving our country. I have to say though, I’m with Hillary Clinton because I do not believe in what Trump has been saying.” - Tyler McGarvey, Senior, Biology Major
“From what I’m seeing through social media outlets, this has been a very interesting election. We have two very different candidates running. Whoever has the best ideologies and the best delivery is going to win it all in November.” - Makamae Namahoe, Campus Life Coordinator
“On one hand we have Hillary Clinton, the first-ever female nominee, and we have Donald Trump, who a lot of people say is one of the most unconventional presidential candidates we’ve ever had. I think that this is definitely a unique election for a first-time voter. We need to do research and make informed decisions before we vote.” - Adam Silverstein, Freshman
