BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Imagine that the 2016 election is the first one you can vote in and that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump the two main choices. It’s not hard to see why some first time voters told me that this election is a disappointment.
Sunday’s presidential debate was anything but boring, but it can leave some voters feeling, well, disappointed.
“A little disappointed that these are my two options,” Morgan Paramore said. This is her first election.
“I’m leaning toward Hillary, which kind of sucks, because I don’t like either of them,” she continued. Neither candidate has a very high approval rating among young undecided voters.
“You’re not getting the whole truth from either, so you really don’t know who to decide, honestly,” Jarren Eaton said. He’s also a first time voter.
“This will be my first election and it’s like you don’t even want to vote because just looking at the two candidates,” Eaton said. If this election is doing one thing — it’s forcing people to pay attention.
“In the past I’ve actually not been very active politically and I haven’t really been interested, but I feel like at this point and as an adult it’s my responsibility to become interested and to become active,” Brianna Ehie said.
