George Washington is remembered as one of the most famous and influential presidents. Some have described him as a god from his leadership to his appearance. He was very prominent and influential in some of the most significant parts in shaping and building of the United States.

At a basic level, Source B suggests this trend, pointing out that intense contact with politics may instead pushed people away from it. However, Source D confirms it. It is interesting to note that television ratings for presidential debates have virtually perpetually gone down since their start in 1960, but it is far more important to realize that the number of people watching these debates have, bar an initial rise, most likely due to increased television ownership, attracted increasingly less viewers. In fact, in 1980, the debates reached 45.8 million homes.

A family living at a poverty state, struggles just to stay at float and can never seem to move up the income bracket. In an analysis by reflectionsyale.org author Leslie G.

Most students don’t go to college because they don’t do well in high school, so they think college will even harder. College isn’t for everyone. A lot of high school students drop out, so what makes people think that they’ll go through college?

Andrew Points out, “During the  recession, enrollments boomed and the state budget for higher education took a hit. Unable to raise additional revenue through a tuition increase, California’s community colleges turned away 600,000 students” (para 3).

This point of view makes sense since, as I said earlier, there are 100 million people that have not voted in the last election, this means that around 40 percent of those eligible to vote, do not. We are missing a huge gap in our societies opinions. However according to text 2 “Countries such as Venezuela and the Netherlands practised compulsory voting at one time but have since abolished it”. This means that there are countries that have tried it in the past, and it did not work. Lastly, since 100 million people vote the majority reason that people do not vote, do not vote because they do not have the knowledge for an educated answer.
