He says trust, honesty Were most crucial issues

Jordan Lewis, 20, lives and breathes ‘Canes for Obama. While at the BankUnited Center, he said he had been eagerly awaiting for Election Day for as long as he could remember.  As president of the Young and College Democrats at the University of Miami, Lewis loves politics.

“The key issue for me is trust,” said Lewis, a first-time voter. He said he was turned off by  “lying and deception” on behalf of Mitt Romney’s campaign, especially in advertisements.

“Romney is not fit to be president,” Lewis said.

Lewis acknowledged the importance of early voting, and was quick to criticize Florida Governor Rick Scott for cutting early voting in the Sunshine State from 14 days to eight days. Lewis said he felt reducing early voting time was a deliberate, partisan attempt to suppress the vote among groups that traditionally support the Democratic Party, including African-Americans and voters who have a hard time taking off work to vote on a weekday.
