How A President is Elected

I found a great site created by a high school that gives a detailed account on how a president is elected.  It is about the 2008 election in which Barack Obama was elected president but it is relevant today because it gives a detailed description of the process.  Want to check it out?  Click here!

Mudslinging

Mudslinging is using insults, put-downs, rumors and/or accusations, especially ones that are not true, to make an opponent look bad.

If you think Former Secretary Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are saying bad things about each other than you might be interested  in learning that mudslinging is very common in political campaigns. In fact, mudslinging has been around since the very first political election for president.

Probably one of the most famous cases of presidential mudslinging occurred  between John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson in 1828.

Check out this video to see some of the untrue comments made about John Quincy Adams.

Remember when voting for president, stick with the issues.  Don’t be swayed by public opinion or commercials.  Be sure to always check the facts and vote for the person who you think will do the best job!

Want to Know What the Candidates Think About Important Issues?

I was wondering around the internet just the other day and I found this great article from the New York Times.  It shows a great graphic on the main issues mentioned by the Presidential Candidates and where they stand on those issues.  This would be a great article for anybody that wants to make an informed decision before voting for president.  The article is old but it still is a valuable resource.  Check it out by clicking here.
