Jai Thornhill, Senior. When talking about what good qualities the candidates had, Jai said, “I don’t think Trump is the perfect candidate either, [he] definitely has a lot of faults. But, at least he’s upfront and open about it. Hillary’s got a lot of baggage that we don’t even know. He’s just like “I’m an idiot. Like me for it or don’t.” He doesn’t care. He says exactly what he thinks, not sugar coating it, beating around the bush. Straight forward.”

TKC went around Kirkwood to get opinions on this upcoming presidential election. Here are the results:
Sabrina Wick, Senior. What’s your biggest concern for the election this year?
“Donald Trump in general, not really anything specific about him, just him in general. He worries me.”
Did you watch the debate last night (October 9th)?
“I did. Most of it.”
Do you have any opinions about that? Who do you think won?
“Trying not to be biased, I think that Hillary did a better job at answering questions and going into depth as to what she would do for the country and for the benefit of other people. Whereas Donald Trump was “he said… she said…this” And his facts weren’t right. I just think Hillary did a better job.”
