Crash Course to the American Election
Eleanor Hogan summarises the upcoming American election.
A lot of things seem to happen every four years: the Olympics, the World Cup, Adele’s new album – the list goes on. But for Americans, every four years, the usually uninteresting political news cycle ramps up, and suddenly every one of your Facebook friends has become a political commentator and is more than happy to yell at you over the internet.
American presidential elections tend to be a multi-year, multi-million dollar, and multi-step ordeal. Candidates typically begin running the spring of the year preceding the election and they will campaign for their party’s nomination until the summer of the election year. This time last year, the field of nominees was much wider. Some, like Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz, were serious contenders up until the conventions. Others were mere side shows to the more vocal candidates. When it comes down to it, all that really matters are the names that appear on the ballot come the 8th of November: Hillary Rodham Clinton and her running mate, Tim Kaine; Donald Trump and his running mate, Mike Pence.
This year’s election is rather historic, as it the first time that a major party have nominated a woman as their nominee. And as such, were Secretary Clinton to be elected president, she would be the first female president in American history.
As election day approaches, Americans find themselves torn. Truly, it is a challenging decision, which many view as selecting the lesser of two evils. There is no clear frontrunner as of now, with Secretary Clinton only ahead by a few points. As it currently stands, Secretary Clinton is just slightly edging out Mr. Trump, but there are still 39 days and two debates to go before Americans cast their vote.
