According to The Brazil Times' online responders, change will not be brought to government despite election promises.
Throughout the 2008 election season, President-elect Barack Obama (D-Ill.) promised to bring change to Washington.
However, the majority of online responders to a recent Times' poll question don't think it will happen.
The Times recently asked online readers, "Can the changes made in government this election season actually bring change?"
Respondents were given two options to choose from, either yes or no.
Of the 468 people that voted in the poll, 242 (51.7 percent) said no change would be made. A total of 226 responders, however, said change could be made, standing at 48.3 percent.
In addition, a total of 22 respondents commented on the post.
One responder stated, "Even though I'm not for Obama, I think change will come out of this election," while another said, "Yes, but it will take at least four years to start to undo what the last president has set in motion."
Another said, "They all say the same stuff we want to hear but they are self-motivated and not for the people," while another stated, "Let's hope it does. We need it badly."
The current Times' online poll question is in regard to Thanksgiving.
