  • Notes: "The Average American Voter is in response to some of the interviews with people about why and for whom they were going to vote: He has the same name as my uncle, she is just like us, his opponent is a Muslim, she owns five Chihuahuas. Disheartening to say the least, but a splendid opportunity for satire." Jon Nalven, The San Diego Tribune, March 31st, 2013.
