Description

The amount of money that makes a donor matter to a politician they are backing was $5,200 in 2014. Out of the whole population of the United States, only 57,874 people were able to pay that amount. That is 0.02% of the population. Which means, 0.02% of the population nominates the candidates, and let the rest of the country choose between them. The corruption in Washington is generating a huge skepticism among voters throughout the country. Voters are interpreting some policy speeches as if politicians are just normalizing the issues, so their donors can get their agendas’ passed. My presentation will address the concept of hyper normalization and the effect it has made regarding the political process and campaign financing.
