Angry, fired up and anxious. This is how some voters feel about voting in this year’s midterm elections. They took to Twitter, comparing how they cast their ballot in 2016 during the presidential election to how they’re doing it in 2018.
One post compared a shirtless Leonardo DiCaprio gleefully holding a water gun to the actor portraying fur trapper Hugh Glass in "The Revenant," trying to survive in the wilderness after he was mauled by a bear.
Another post compared a little dog enjoying the breeze from an open car to a wolf baring its teeth and ready to pounce.
The “Me Voting in 2016 vs. Met voting in 2018” memes began trending on Twitter a day before Americans were to vote in the first nationwide elections since Donald Trump became president. The tweets show renewed energy and commitment around the civic duty after two years of intensely partisan politics.
A record 36 million people voted early in the 2018 midterm elections and it’s a trend that is expected to extend into Election Day.
