Mireille Vachon La Tribune Whether seated comfortably in front of their television or grouped together with friends in different bars in the region, many Sherbrooke residents had their eyes riveted in front of a screen on Tuesday evening during the American elections. According to the testimonies collected by La Tribune , a preference for the democratic party seems to be emerging in Sherbrooke.
By the way from La Tribune to the King Hall bar in the early evening, the place was already crowded. “We have a lot of employees who study politics, and as a rule, we are people who like to follow that. These are also debates that we have with customers, ”explains Maxime Pothier, manager of King Hall, where election evenings have been taking place for about six years.
“I want it more to heart this year, because four years ago, one could not foresee how bad the election of Trump would be. Now we have realized the absurdity of the matter. It's worrying, ”said a client, who wished to remain anonymous.
“It's really hard to say who will win. Regardless of the result, there will probably be riots immediately after, ”believes Esther Carle-Pruneau, who was accompanied by her friend Audrey Sigouin.
“There is no ideal choice,” said Ms. Sigouin. “Once there, people vote for the least. I admit that I'm still scared, because no matter what will happen, it will probably turn out badly, ”she regrets.
As for the manager Maxime Pothier, he finds that “it would end well the year that [Donald] Trump leaves the White House”.
