A student poll at Rogue Community College mirrors national polls for the presidential election.
In a recent unscientific poll taken from 20 RCC students, 10 are voting for Romney, eight for Obama and two are still undecided.
According to the most recent Gallup polls, 51 percent of likely voters said they would support Romney, compared to 46 percent who said they would support Obama.
Henry Larance, an RCC student, explains why he is going to vote Obama.“He is finally turning this country around. He focuses on the poor, not the rich,” Larance said.
Another RCC student, Matthew Curtis, said he will be voting for Romney this November.
“Romney has a better plan for the economy, a better track record of getting the job done and shares the values that I believe most Americans hold.” Curtis said.
When asked whether or not her vote will count in a predominantly Democratic state, an RCC student, who asked to not be identified, said that sometimes Oregon can be its own worst enemy.
“If everyone who thinks their vote won’t count–doesn’t vote, of course it won’t make a difference,” she said.
This RCC poll was taken by randomly asking students walking in the HEC building which candidate they will be voting for come November 6.
