ADVERTISEMENT On Wednesday, University of Texas at Austin college students responded to which candidate they would be voting for ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. Despite the midterms being less than a month away, the majority of students couldn’t even say why they were supporting their preferred candidate.
One student who labeled himself as “socialist democratic,” shared that he would be voting for Beto , but when asked why he admitted, “honestly I just want to push for Texas to be blue overall, I’m not like a particular fan of Beto .” Another student who shared that she would be voting in the 2020 midterms immediately responded that she would be voting for “Beto.” However, after being asked why, she could only respond with, “I love Beto. I don’t know anything about politics, I’m sorry.”
When asked why she wouldn’t be voting for current Texas Governor Greg Abbott since she was unaware of Beto’s policy she shared, “It’s cause a lot of my friends talk about Beto and how great he is and I agree with my friends ideals.”
Two out-of-state students responded similarly. “I am an out-of-state student, but I do plan on voting for Beto,” one shared, “yeah same here,” the other agreed.
When pressed again for just one policy they liked, both students silently stared at each other as neither could come up with an answer.
Per the Campus Vote Project, in Texas, students, “have a right to register to vote at the address you consider the place where you live, whether that is your family’s home or the place where you attend school.” The only qualification for voting in Texas state and local elections, is a requirement to have lived in the state for 30 days.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
