The DNC May Have Seriously Inspired People To Get Out And Vote

“Don’t boo, vote.”


While many were moved to tears by the Democratic National Convention, it seems many more were moved to register to vote. According to AOL News, Google saw a 190 percent increase in searches for the term “voter registration” last Wednesday night, the third night of the convention. Apparently, this is the first major upswing in “voter registration” searches since the primaries.

But what about this particular DNC inspired potential voters like none other? You could attribute it to Hillary Clinton, the first woman in U.S. history to secure a presidential nomination, Michael Bloomberg’s call to action for uncertain, middle-aged men, or Joe Biden’s thoughtful, heartfelt speech. Though the clear winner Wednesday night had to be Barack Obama who said in response to the audience booing at the mention of Donald Trump, “Don’t boo, vote.”

Could that be the most motivating slogan yet? Only time will tell.
