Students, what an amazing presidential election we witnessed. We were all on the edge of our seats, hoping the candidate we chose would win. Personally, the waiting for four days was an emotional roller-coaster, and I am happy it's over. Nonetheless, the election of 2020 will no doubt be written in our history books for so many reasons. First, we had the largest voter turn-out in our nation's history, while we are still in the middle of a global pandemic. Next, Kamala Harris is the first woman to elected Vice-President of the United States of America. And, she is the first African American and Asian American ever to be elected to the Executive Branch. Finally, President-elect Joe Biden received the most votes by any elected President. And he is only the second Catholic President to be elected, the other was John F. Kennedy.
i think its good that biden won because trump made lots of bad choices and does lots of bad things and did not handle the virus well so hopefully the virus gets in control and america gets better
i am very satisfied with the new president elect because our current president treated our country like a social event, using important religious trademarks for photo-opps. He was also given the chance before all of the commotion and spread of the Covid-19 and chose to ignore it and then once the commotion came with the spread he claimed it was a lie and that it didn't exist so we must now look to our new leadership to solve all the problems we now face.
i am happy to see that joe biden won since he had a good way of seeing things like that amercica is not red states and blue states
I feel relieved that Joe Biden won. We get to witness a new president in action and I hope that he makes better choices than our old one.
Well said Jerry
I feel kinda worried about our new president since he might make the wrong choices.
If you said that every single time a president was elected, you wouldn't have a voice anymore.
I am pretty happy about the results of the 2020 election because we don't have to suffer through the same president as last year, Donald Trump. In addition, Joe Biden was the former vice president for many years so he might get the gist of what to do for the country more than Donald Trump who was formerly a businessman.
I'm happy and relived that Joe Biden won. We had to wait a few days for all the ballots to be counted. Everything was pretty nerve racking. I could hear people outside yelling. I trust that he will be a great president.
I'm relieved that Biden won. I hope he's a good president and makes good choices for this country.
I'm happy that joe Biden won because it's seems Trump hasn't helped much with the corona virus cases, hopefully Biden will make the right choices to stop this pandemic, and allow us to return to school.
I am happy Joe won the election and I am excited for a new African American female Vice President !
Thank god Biden won, if Trump won again I would be scared for the U.S, then again, now we just have to hope Biden makes better choices than Trump
The election was really intense and Biden won and since my family are happy that Biden won, I am ok with the happy with the results of the election. Now what kind of matters is what Biden will do with his new position and how he will handle the current issues now I think.
I don't really know how I feel about the election I just hope that he does a good job as president and helps America in this pandemic. I also hope that anything else bad happens it will be handled in a good way.
The election was very tight and was very close until Biden had a big league. I didn't really care who was really president and I didn't like either president at all. My dad was happy that he won but my mom as well didn't really pick a side because she thought they weren't that good. But to have the vice president be female is making history.
I am happy that Biden won, and I hope he can help the USA with the pandemic. If the pandemic ends, we can go back to school to learn and meet our friends again.
I hope Joe Biden will make a better choice about the coronavirus and help us get back to normal life as quickly as possible. I'm surprise that this election have the first female vice president in the U.S.
I was ecstatic about the results from the presidential election! I know the election carried on for days, which was fairly nerve-wracking for everyone. I truly believe that Joe Biden will do a far better job at handling this virus than Trump ever did. After watching debates and watching his speeches, I am convinced that he will do a much better job for this country.
I am happy that Joe Biden won however the fact that it was a close race was scary to me. Since it was such a tight race, and everyone had different opinions, it means that a lot of people are divided. On the other hand, I hope Joe Biden does make better choices to make our country better.
I am happy that Joe Biden won and I believe that he will make the right and smart decisions for America. From Joe Biden´s speeches and campaign, I think that he will help America and help fight through this tough time we are currently experiencing.
I am glad that Joe Biden won because he plans to tackle the Coronavirus that has already destroyed many lives and families. If Trump won, then his plan to save the economy may backfire due to Covid still being around. And I find it childish that Trump is not accepting defeat because others gave him a chance and look at where we are today.
I agree! I think Trump should just accept that he lost the election and move on. That's the mature way to handle the situation after the aftermath of the election. We gave him a chance to benefit the country and "make America great again." After 4 years, what did he do? Nothing. All he did was spread racial injustice among different minorities, enforce racial division instead of unity, and he made absolutely no effort in monitoring this virus. A true president would have brainstormed a plan right away to defeat this virus and take action in making it work instead of just saying that it will "magically" go away and not do anything about it.
I didn't really have an opinion on who I thought was better. I like to think that I'm still a kid and shouldn't have to worry about politics and elections yet. As long as life can stay peaceful and the country isn't ruined I don't think who the president is should matter to me yet.
Honestly, I don't really like Biden or Trump, however I hate Trump more so I'm glad that Biden won. I hope that unlike Trump, Biden makes the smart and right decisions for this country and help us overcome this pandemic we're experiencing today and continue to help us for the next 4 years in office.
I'm happy that Joe won the presidential election because I believe he will be a better president than Trump. I believe he can take on the coronavirus better than trump, and restore normal life as soon as possible even if it takes him more than 1 term. This was a close race but it came to a end with most happy, some not. But at least we have a better president for the U.S, or at least, A PRESIDENT.
I'm not sure what to feel about Biden winning, as of now, America is in a bad state and we need someone that is qualified enough to handle this situation correctly. I don't really care about Biden winning but I just hope he can make good choices.
The last few days were a long wait, and I was checking every hour to see if the votes have gone up. When the votes for Joe Biden finally passed 270, I was really happy and so did my neighbors, they were all cheering when I woke up that day. I think that changing a president can either make it better for the country, or worse. So I hope that our new President Biden will make wise decisions and have a good strategy to help the US through this pandemic. I hope that he also will bring words to solve the many other problems that has occurred during the year.
I am happy that Biden was elected because Trump needed to get taken out of office. Trump has made poor descesions and has been one of the worst presidents we have ever had and handled the pandemic horribly. I don't think that Biden will be significantly better but I think that he will have a better career in office.
It's very interesting though I do hope that the next president helps.
Based on the election alone you can tell the difference between the candidates. One is confident and the other is just childish. For the past few days, there has been many protest about the ballot count system. Making people gather to disturb workers that are counting during a pandemic is quite "smart" of the formal president to do. Anyways I'm glad the election is over and I hope Biden can help rebuild America back to normal.
i think that joe’s win was expected, he passed the record of the votes of obama
Regarding the presidential election, I personally feel that both nominees were equally as bad, though Trump is worse. I really hope that Biden will be the president the United States needs right now, we’ll just have to wait and see how it plays out. I do hope that Biden makes the right choices considering all the things going on in the country right now like Covid-19 and discrimination against certain groups of people. There is A LOT that needs to be done for America to succeed.
I am very proud that Biden has become our 46th president of the USA. It means a lot will change in these 4 years and hopefully BLM and LGBTQ+ will get the rights and freedom they deserve. I am also overjoyed that Kamala Harris is our vice president since she is not only a person of color, but she is also a woman. This is a big turn in our government, by bringing in different and better ideas to help make this country better.
I personally don't agree what Biden says entirely but I really think he has a lot potential into him to reverse what Trump did, and actually care to help with Covid 19, and maybe don't be selfish about America only, and perhaps unite with other countries. Kamala Harris being the first female, Asian, and African vice presidents represents How America is trying to reinforce itself, Like a true Union does.
i did not really care about the elction but trump did say a lot of bad things about the asians
This may sound a bit annoying from me, but I think later on we should really care about elections, since they have a large impact on the country, such as taxes
I don't care about the election but my thoughts on it is that I think Biden deserved to win. My reasons are Trump is really racist to Chinese. Trump called Covid 19 the Chinese Virus and said Chinese people are the reason for the cause. He blamed China so much he only blocked transport to CHINA ONLY not the other countries that could had the virus not knowing the virus could transport to other countries. Another reason is that Trump defense to win the election is "Biden likes China and the Chinese don't vote him Chinese are the cause of the virus. Vote trump now". This is the worst defense in a presidential debate and he was the cause for the virus spreading not china.
i rly did not care about this until i heard the things that joe biden was saying i just know that ether way we are screwed for the next 4 years ether way. Because they are both people who say things just to get people on their side.
I am happy that Joe Biden won the election. My family was really nervous about who was going to win but we were really happy when Biden got over 270 electoral votes. I hope Biden can help get rid of the coronavirus so we can go back to our normal lives.
I am so relieved and happy that Joe Biden won the election. My family was relieved. Trump has been the worst president ever. Even though Biden wasn't the best candidate but he wast the best option Biden can progress America into a new America. While Trump would juts make america worse. I wasn't really worried about trumps accusations because he had no evidence and he is just saying false claims even big news stations left his speech ad went back to regular tv because he made so many false claims. It was like a whole sigh releif that Biden won and I am so happy he did.
I was happy that Biden won the election, even though I wasn't a big fan of Biden either I still would rather have him be president than Trump.I think especially during times right now, we need a president that is actually going to help the situation with the pandemic and actually keep things under control. I believe Biden will do a great job being president with help from the first female colored vice president Kamala Harris.
I am glad that the person running our country for the next 4 years will be Joe Biden and not Trump again because nothing good came from him. I trust Biden to lead the US for the next couple of years since he was the former vice president for Obama. I am also happy that Kamala Harris will be the vice president for Joe Biden. Its a big step for women as she is the first female vice president and the first vice president of color.
I’m just happy that Biden won since Trump made a lot of bad choices when he was still president.
I am happy that Biden won the election because I like Biden better than Trump, and I am excited for our new vice president-elect.
I'm happy that Biden won because Trump probably wouldn't have been great at managing the country's affairs during this crisis. But I think Biden has a rocky road ahead of him because there's a pandemic along with the many protests that are happening at the moment and the public's expectations for him
I am actually very relieved that the country made the right choice, and elected Joe Biden. I have a lot of reasons why I would support Joe Biden and not Trump, but this isn't the right place to say them. I'm just really happy that a leader I trust can now lead the country to a right path.
Very insightful thoughts. I am also curious about what you and/or your families were doing when you found out the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.
I am very relieved that Biden won. Right now we don't need a hard hitting influential leader, we need safe and calm one the guide us through the pandemic and such. However, even if we are satisfied with the winner of the election, we still have to hold Biden accountable for anything he does in he future. Although, the first ever female person of color vice president was elected, which is a great stepping stone to adding female representation in the white house. Kamala Harris might be the first women, but she definitely won't be the last.
I think Joe have a really important task as a president during this time to help make America a better place and solve the problem we have in America.
Well, albeit this may be a great victory for the democrats, nothing can be done if the senate is mostly filled with republicans.
I feel great that joe biden is our new president because trump was doing wrong as a president. i feel that biden will make this world a better place!
Well im happy that trump i sout of the office. I also don't think that neither trump or biden is good. I just want biden to control the virus outspread in the united states.
I think that the election results will continued to be argued about because the election was close. I think this election will be argued about, not because people opinions(even though people will still argue about their positions) but because of the idea of fake votes. Some people argue that there were fake votes because all the swing states suddenly turned blue or dead people voting.
I think that our next president would have a lot of responsibility, because of Covid.
I did not really like Trump or Biden, I felt that both have their bad qualities. I have to accept the President chosen by all the people who voted. I can just hope that Biden will be able to handle all the major issues America is facing now, especially COVID 19. Maybe we needed a change. I just hope it is a change for the better.
Just read through all of these thoughtful comments and was really impressed how our younger generation is paying attention to the issues we face. Keep up the wonderful work!
I feel that Joe Biden will definitely take more action to stop this pandemic. Personally I feel that both of them have their flaws between leadership and actions they've took. Of course, they both have equally great achievements that some presidents don't have.
Joe Biden's win has made many people throughout the country very happy. I hope he lives up to his word and make this country a better place. He'll have an important role as president to make his people happy.
I'm glad that Joe Biden won instead of Donald Trump because of how Biden would take more action on the pandemic and do things that Trump would not do. I hope our new president would do better than than the last president.
I'm not a big fan of this, but still I feel happy when Joe Biden won the election instead of Trump. I hope Biden can control the pandemic and hopefully the pandemic will stop.
I’m not very concerned about this, so I will be neutral most of the time,
but when the results were announced, I was happy that Biden won.
I was neutral about the election, but since Joe Biden won the election, hopefully he'll make better decisions for the country. From what I know, during Donald Trump's term of president, he hasn't be making good choices.
I'm not sure how to feel, but I think this may be better for the country due to how Trump composed himself and his campaign.
I didn’t feel anything because I was neutral about the election. But I hope that Joe Biden will lead America to a better future.
