Ow American citizens surroundings and circumstances impact whom they vote for.

The research topic is how our personal values and the circumstances around us impact whom we vote for. This essay needs to argue the problem is that very few people think of the big picture when they vote in a presidential election. That Americans tend to be more self-centered I guess you could say, in their voting. They tend to lean more towards the candidate who focuses on the issues they personally struggle with, rather than what this country struggles with. The purpose of this research is to reveal how much Americans ask,  What can the candidate do for me? instead of  What can the candidate do for our country? For example, the wealthy man isn t too much interested in universal healthcare, because he can afford it whereas; the man on welfare is entirely concerned about it.
