Politics in the USA – level 2

14-09-2016 07:00

People are not happy with representation in the USA, and there is a campaign for people not to vote. One African American said that he is not voting until black lives matter.

There is also dissatisfaction with the presidential candidates. People say that Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are the most disliked candidates in history. People say that they must choose between two horrible people.

A politics professor says that the candidates are very different, and that this makes this election interesting.

Difficult words: representation (political representation – how people represent you in the government), dissatisfaction (when people do not like something), dislike (not to like something), election (when people choose a person to be a leader, such as the president).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
