“I think in regards to the state propositions, which is what I was more concerned about, I think a lot of good things have passed. For example, prop 55 has passed and that’s something that really helps our community colleges. I was more looking forward to that as opposed to the presidential race.” -Adam Molina

“In my point of view, each candidate at the end of the day no matter what they say, their racial perspectives, their views different issues, it doesn’t really matter whatever they say (it) can’t be done right away.” -Alex Diaz

“It caught me off guard. I really thought that Hillary was gonna win. I try to find the best in people and I hope Trump does something good and he just ran his campaign dirty and his presidency isn’t gonna be like that. Probably won’t, but I think it’s possible.” -Nancy Lomeli

”I feel pretty bad about it. I feel the people who voted made the wrong decision. They are taking the votes as a joke, because they voted for a diseased animal. I just felt that those are the people to blame if anyone feels that Trump shouldn’t be president.” -Tyler Tropet

“It’s kinda a similar situation with England and Brexit. It’s a “last hurrah” of a dying generation, too much progression too quickly for them so they wanted to pull back in so that’s the result. There are a lot of Bernie or Bust people who were not about Hillary and so they are willing to not vote for her.” -Anthoneal Davis
