My son is a junior at U of Pittsburgh. They aren’t just voting, they are working on Dem campaigns and canvassing. Since he is a person of color, he avoided homes with lawns covered with MAGA signs. He said in wishy-washy homes, many people really didn’t know much about reality and many minds were changed. He worked with John Fetterman and was lucky enough to shake Obama’s hand by camping out in the pouring rain in front of the stage the night before former President Obama was scheduled to speak. They think the abortion thing went badly? Wait until they try to take away their voting rights! They are tired of the destruction of the planet. They are horrified by mass shooters terrorizing kids and young adults simply because they are trying to learn. These kids are amazing.
