Republican candidate, or Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic candidate, in the election.  
She is not an ideologue and she does not have high political knowledge.  Her parents are
Republicans and growing up, they regularly discussed politics at the dinner table.  However, in
the 2016 election, she registered as a Democrat and regularly watches MSNBC, a more liberal
news network.  However, she is currently an independent swing voter who voted for Hillary
Clinton in 2016 but for Mitt Romney in 2012.  She also reads the New York Times daily and on
the morning of September 7th, she read an article that said: “Although the unemployment rate
has been at historic lows throughout President Trump’s first three years in office, the
unemployment rate skyrocketed from 4.4% to 14.7% this past month due to the Coronavirus
pandemic.  This is the highest unemployment rate since the Great Depression and there are no
signs of an improving economy in the near future.”
