End Citizens United Increases Political Awareness, Sees Results In Recent Texas Poll Results

     There is no doubt that there has been a lot of unrest in the country, and people all over are looking forward to the 2020 elections with the view of bringing about change in the country. Democratic representatives all over the country are receiving an incredible amount of support because of the dire need for change, and people are coming forward to show their support for them.

Ted Cruz is one of the most notable nominees of the Republican Party and was seen as one of the sure shot winners of the election. The state that he was most prominent in was the state of Texas, which in the past was always in favor of the Republican Party. The party had previously won several times in this state, and when Ted Cruz’ campaign began, many people thought that the votes would show in his favor again. However, recent polls suggest that the views of people in the state of Texas are changing, with more and more people opting to go in for the Democratic Party candidates over the other options that they have.

Before this year’s campaigns started, a strikingly large amount of people who were voting for the Republican party had very little idea about their workings and the kind of activities that they partook in. They had very little idea about the people who they were voting for, let along their personalities and what they stood for. However, the emergence of new organization like the End Citizens United has brought light to these nominees and the acts that they have been known to commit. They have managed to create a sense of transparency in American politics so that the people are informed about who they are voting for, and know who their potential leaders are going to be. This has led to better voting turnouts like the recent poll results of Ted Cruz.

End Citizens United is a political action committee which has greatly influenced the recent political decisions that people take when they are voting for a party. The organization was founded in 2010 after the supreme court ruling of ‘Citizens United’ was passed. This ruling brought down the status of a company or a business to that of a person living in society. This made it so that the people who own companies can send in money to political parties without having to specify the need for the money, and without having to account for it in their books, since it would be considered a gift or a donation to a political party. This resulted in business leaders using their money for favors that political parties could carry out for them in exchange for funds for their campaigns. People who were offering these funds then started using this ability for their gain. This led to a spread of corruption among politicians and people who owned a lot of money.
