In a wave of optimism sweeping the nation, some Americans report that they may actually bother voting in the 2020 presidential election.
"It's too soon to tell, but I may see if I can free up some time in my schedule," said Kate Truman of New York City. "I'm feeling pretty empowered lately.
Bill Putnam of Avon, Connecticut, articulated a similar tepid enthusiasm for the upcoming election. "Some of the Democratic candidates seem a little less hypocritical than I'm used to," he said. "It was jarring at first, but I've come to actually appreciate it. Who knows, I might end up headiing out to the polls."
He added, "Depending on how I'm feeling that day, of course."
Katrina Larson of Louisville, Kentucky, likewise expressed interest in participating in the election process - within limits. "If they have early voting, I'll do it," she said."I'm a busy lady."
On the other hand, Anne Schultz of Albany, New York, was less certain whether she intended to make it to the voting polls in November. "For me, it's all about the candidates, so it's really a question of who's running," she said. "Do we know yet if Hillary's in?"
