If children ages 13 to 17 could vote, President Obama and Mitt Romney would have to bring more pop culture into their campaigns, and push to change certain laws.

They could get the attention of teenagers through music and MTV. Romney and Obama would have to start rapping with Drake and Weezy. They would have to start representing the true meaning of “swag,” and using the colloquial language for teenagers, like “YOLO.” Their first step would be through looks, then publicity. Both candidates would have to get tattoos and snapbacks, and wear black Vans or Jordans. For Obama and Romney to appeal to teenagers the most, they’d have to sag enough to show their drawers saying “Vote for Obama” and “Vote for Romney.”

President Obama and Mitt Romney would have to start rapping with Drake and Weezy.

They wouldn’t only need to change their looks and learn how to rap, but to get teenagers to vote for them they’d need to change a lot of laws as well. They’d need to legalize marijuana, extend curfew hours, and lower the official “adult age” for drinking and everything else.
