Jack Davis: Grade 8
The game of musical chairs for the Oval Office has began in Iowa, with outspoken Donald Trump and conservative Ben Carson leading the Republican polls. Throughout the Red race, Trump has been the top dog, but Ben Carson has now overtaken him due to his conservative views. In the Republican race, voters have been looking for a candidate who has not been a traditional politician. Ben Carson has a good approach, and he seems to be reaching out to a lot of his voters. His religious and peaceful views are appealing to a lot of people, and it is a great way to become the leader of our country. On the other hand, some people prefer Donald Trump’s “hard truth” theme for his campaign. Both Trump and Carson have great ideas for how to lead our country, but only one candidate can ultimately remain.
