"He seems to be the only one trying.” - Anonymous
"He's the candidate who really advocates putting people first. He really promotes equality for all, which can be seen through his views/policies in topics such as private prisons, income taxes, and student debts. The perspective he provides with his policies correlates with a lot of my own opinions." - Anonymous
