Do politicians have more power over the public?

I think politicians don't have more power than the public because the public vote for who they want to be the next prime minister, mayor and vice-president and these politicians only do a campaign to try to get people to vote for them. Polititians only get power if they win the election they are participating of like Donald Trump on the last American election,he wasn't powerful and a ruler of his country before he became president, he was only a politician doing his campaign and that is the same with all politicians from all around the world and you can't become powerful before the public have agreed with that and that is with all the powers this person may get. There are few things you might need in order to become a power of your country like a great campaign and a excelent reputation because if you don't have those things you won't get voted for and that is also why we have an age limit to vote because if a two year old could vote they wouldn't understand who they are voting for because they are not that conscious yet and might not vote for a good candidate and also not a good future for their country,city or town (even with the help of their parents they might not vote for someone good especially if their parents,family or carers don't vote for someone good either).

    I agree with you to marvellous_lemon! Politicians to not have more power than the public. When the public votes for a new prime minister of president, it is the public's power to vote for who they want to be.

    I think that the public have power when they are voting, however when the president gets picked all of the power goes to them and the politicians. So at first the public can deide who they want to be president but after that all of the power and decisions go to the president and politicians. For example when there is a issue the public dont really have a say on it but you did get to pick the president so you need to deal with their decisions.

      Does ALL of the power to go the president and the politicians? Or does there still retain some power to the public?

    I agree with you. I believe politicians have the same power with the public, as they can both make decisions. What I mean is, the public can do protests to make the government hear about what they want, and the Politicians can make that happen. The public can also decide who they want to be the president of America.
