'What in the hell is the matter with this man?' Joe Biden argues the Trump administration is 'giving up' on its COVID-19 response.
President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are racing toward Nov. 3 with more campaign events Monday.
Why many Americans don’t vote and how for some this year could be differentThe last time Richard Brown voted was in 2008. He had caught a couple of presidential debates on TV, and found himself liking what the Democratic candidate, Barack Obama, had to say. And as a Black man, he was excited by the idea of voting for the country’s first Black president.
Then in 2012, he decided not to bother casting a second ballot for Obama. It wasn’t that he had soured on the president — he just didn’t think it was necessary. “He’s already in office … (so) I kinda figured he didn’t need my help,” Brown said. He was willing to take the time out of his day to cast his vote, but he didn’t think it would have an impact on the outcome. “I know it’s kind of a stupid thought, but I feel like one missed vote isn’t going to change anything.”

Twelve years later, though, he’s planning to vote again. It’s not because Brown, who is now 53 and lives in the Midwest, is newly hopeful that his vote will matter. In fact, he’s not at all confident that the candidate he’s supporting, Joe Biden, will win. But the stakes of this election feel personal. Over the past four years, some of his friends have changed the way they act and talk, saying hateful things about Obama or sharing racist memes on Facebook.
“I’m not even really keen on Biden,” Brown said. “It’s more so that Trump is bringing racist rhetoric out of a lot of people.” Those kinds of comments are “really hurtful to me, disrespectful to me,” he said. So he’s decided to vote again this year: “This way, if (Biden) does lose the election, I can’t say that it was my fault because I didn’t vote.”
Every election,and, it turns out, lots of people feel like Brown: They think voting doesn’t matter or isn’t worth their time.Win Mcnamee/Getty ImagesPeople wait in line to vote at the Montgomery County Executive Office Building, Oct. 26, 2020, in Rockville, Maryland.
People wait in line to vote at the Montgomery County Executive Office Building, Oct. 26, 2020, in Rockville, Maryland.In any given election, between 35 and 60 percent of eligible voters don’t cast a ballot. It’s not that hard to understand why. Our system doesn’t make it particularly easy to vote, and the decision to carve out a few hours to cast a ballot requires a sense of motivation that’s hard for some Americans to muster every two or four years — enthusiasm about the candidates, belief in the importance of voting itself, a sense that anything can change as the result of a single vote.
“I guess I just don’t think that one person’s vote can swing an election,” said Jon Anderson, who won’t be voting for president this year because of moral objections to both candidates.-FiveThirtyEight’s Amelia Thomson-DeVeaux, Jasmine Mithani and Laura BronnerRead more: ABC News »
