Part of the reason today’s questions are later than usual is that I was having difficulty deciding exactly how I wanted to pose today’s questions. I’m not one to normally discuss politics, and while the general idea of this isn’t really about politics, it is heavily related, and is spawned by a conversation that I had with my sister, and a few others who hold frequently opposing viewpoints to my own. Again, this is intended to be less about the actual politics of the situation, and more about your own feelings and perceptions of how others are feeling, but please, answer the question as you best see fit, even if it is more political than I had in mind.
- Have the results of the US Presidential election left you feeling relieved, apprehensive, hopeful, or some other emotion?
- Have you been surprised at all by the emotions and reactions of others regarding the results?
I’m in the UK and don’t usually discuss politics in my blog either, but the US elections have been in everyone’s face.
Personally I am relieved that Trump wasn’t voted in again, but apprehensive about him actually leaving the White House! IMO he has not been very presidential in his behaviour and if someone had thought to confiscate his phone so that he couldn’t tweet, it might not have been a bad idea.
It has been an emotional time, with or without Covid-19, and IMO the country is divided no matter who won. Time will tell and I hope things improve for my friends across the Pond.
