Showing off his flag in front of Stockbridge High School’s apple orchard, Drew Davis 12 represents who he wants to win the 2020 presidential election. Davis thinks that Donald Trump is the best fit for the presidency for the next four years.

In the midst of the pandemic, Kaitelyn Walker 11 and her family have been dealing with their jobs in different ways. While her mom had to adapt to working at home, her dad had to be safe going into work. With all of this going on, Kaitelyn has been thinking of the leadership of our country. 

“I think they need to be flexible, very flexible with the kind of state our country is in,“ Walker 11 said, “I just think we need somebody new.” 

The Presidential election, November 3. As divided as our country is right now and everything going on, this election may be one of the most interesting ones in history. Both candidates are very far on either side of the political spectrum, and so are all of their loyal supporters. While Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, focuses on affordable or free health care for all, Republican nominee Donald Trump, focuses on the economy and creating jobs for American citizens. 

 “I think they both have their pros and cons. I think that it’s a matter of whichever one is the least bad in my opinion,” Walker 11 said, “I mean, personally I don’t like either of them, I do think that, in my opinion, the better choice is Biden, but I could see factors going against him.” 

On the other side of the spectrum, Republican Andrew Davis 12 wants Trump to win.

 “I want him to win because before Covid unemployment was at an all time low, he brought jobs back to America, he is willing to fight for his country and he is a businessman, he does what’s best for the economy more often than not,” Davis said.
