What Students Say / Westview High School
With the Oregon Primary coming up, who do you support for president?
I would most likely vote for Bernie Sanders because of all the negative attention that Donald Trump is getting. I like Bernie because of the idea of free college. Its a concern for me because Im planning for college and its something I need to think about. Donald seems to be pretty extreme about things (and) Im not sure I agree with a lot of what hes saying.

I would vote for Bernie Sanders because he seems like the best candidate. I think that the options that hes proposed are more reasonable and better than other candidates when it comes to offering free college and about immigration.
Nicole Paredes, sophomore
I would vote for Bernie Sanders because I agree with all his points such as being for pro-abortion and gay rights. Hes just equal for everyone and thats how I feel. I feel like everyone should be treated equally. And, since I plan to go to college, it will be very expensive; free college is a good idea. I wouldnt want Trump to be president because he is a very hateful person and thats not what we need.

I think Bernie Sanders would be a good president because he believes in free college. That would be beneficial to high schoolers who plan to go big with their future. I also like that hes for legalizing marijuana. It has benefits for those who have cancer. It help those people who are going through chemotherapy.
Josh Yarr, freshman
I like Bernie Sanders the best out of the candidates for president because he would treat people more equal and not promote hate.
Islam Abdalla, sophomore
I would say Bernie Sanders. I think that free college could motivate high school students to go to college. I just like how social he is. But I also like Clinton because shes more experienced and more familiar with issues.
