There was an even split between students on whether or not the American political system is up to par.
"It still works because we are always getting new leaders who start out with new ideas," said a 19-year-old English major from Middletown.
While the idea of fresh minds and faces seems promising, some students believe the system is set up for disaster.
"It seems that all politicians start out to do good, but in the end they are all corrupt and all decisions aren't made for the good of the people," agreed an anonymous student.
Some believe that the money issue of the politics is keeping the country at risk. "They need to change, otherwise the economy will go down," said a 20-year-old biology major from the Highlands.
One student said the two-party system is having trouble keeping up with people's needs. "I don't think there should be a big split in our country," said Annie Cicata, a 19-year-old liberal education major from Holmdel.
With all of the doubt on one hand, some students have optimism and acceptance toward the two-party system."It makes sense, we are just a huge population and you can't please everyone," said Ashley Harmer, a 20-year-old public relations major from Belmar.
Another student felt strongly about the issue and felt that even with any problems that are here, the country is still far better off than most. "It is still a safer and better form of government than most other countries around the world," Louis E. a 19-year-old history major from Morganville.
