What are your reactions to the word clouds made by both classes? Were you surprised? Why? Why do you think we chose those words? How much do you think we actually know about each other? Other reactions or thoughts?

Who I want

I want either Bernie or Hillary to win.
This is because I think both would be fine in the white house. I don't think anything drastic would change. Bernie has not changed his views all his years in the senate, and Hillary has changed her views about stuff like gay marriage. But I do think Hillary would be able to get things done better.

I think that Bernie would be a great president because, he from VT, he is locally supported, and many other reasons!

Why I like Bernie
a) He is from Vermont witch is kind of odd but is defiantly good.
b) I agree with his ideas.
c) I think he can fix some problem that are defiantly relevant.

But there would be some problems and changes if he became president.

If i could vote for president this year, i would vote for Jill Stein of the green party. I know that it's unlikely they could beat the well established republicans and democrats, but i sincerely believe that our country needs a bit of a reboot. Our economy isn't as smooth as it should be, this is proven by the fact that republicans and democrats can hardly agree on anything, people like Trump running for president and how ignorant we are to problems such as climate change. Our country has been running on the same ideas for too long, and it's still not working. Even if the Green party isn't a smashing smashing success, it would be good for our country to have new ideas.

Sadly, i don't really think Jill Stein would make it into office, our country is wired so people are afraid that if they vote for a new idea, the party they REALLY didn't want would have a better shot at winning. This mentality is held by many people and i don't believe this will change for a long, long time.

I do not think Ben Carson should be president because he is extreme and he has quite a temper. He says that when we was younger he tried to hit his mother over his head with a hammer because of a clothing dispute. He also said that he tried to stab a friend who changed the radio station. I do not think Ben Carson will become president because his sides on topics do not agree with the majorities' opinion. He is also a bit extreme on some points, comparing America to Nazi Germany. He also compared President Obama to Hitler.
