If Americans are willing to vote - despite having to choose between the ‘lesser of two evils’, what’s stopping Romanian citizens from filling out their ballots?
Tomorrow, the U.S. election will take place, and for most Americans, the day couldn’t come soon enough. People aren’t anticipating the 2016 election because they’re looking forward to seeing either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump in office, however, but because tension between supporters of both parties has been high in recent months.
Only 9% of the populace favors either primary Presidential candidate as the next Commander-in-Chief, and it’s the nightmarish fear of one or the other being elected as POTUS that has inspired a decent demographic to vote this election year. Regardless of the circumstances or incentive for voting, the Romanian government is turning the fact that Americans are still willing to support the system into one heck of a campaign to entice its own citizens to participate in democracy.
The logic is, if Americans are still willing to vote – despite having to choose between two obviously flawed candidates – why wouldn’t Romanians care enough to vote for their own country? The campaign was created by Europa FM, an international radio station.
In the ads below, both Trump and Clinton are picked apart based on statements they’ve made in the past. The world might be ready for the U.S. election to take place and be done with, but the Romanian government, at least, is using the event in a humorous and positive matter to encourage its populace to vote.
