Would you ever donate to a political campaign?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Pictures and interviews by Nick Veronin and Emily Efland.

"Yes, I've donated money to political campaigns. I would again if I thought it would make a difference."

Seth Knoepler, Santa Cruz

"I've never donated to a political campaign, but I certainly would if there's a cause that I believe in. Education is one primary cause for me to donate to a campaign."

Arch Pad, San Francisco

"Yes, I would and I have. Why? Because I want to put the right person in office, who I believe in and who believes in the things that are important to me."

Sasha Dass, Boston

"I have only given the three dollars that you can check on your tax return for political contributions, but I even stopped doing that about eight years ago and I no longer contribute even one cent. I think way too much money is spent on campaign elections."

Kathrine McEnroe, San Jose

"I wouldn't be involved in a political campaign, mainly because I'm not very political to begin with. Politics is something I try to keep myself away from."

Joshua Reason, Palo Alto
