First critical vote comes on March 1

To the editor:

The Massachusetts presidential primary is approaching fast! President Obama made the comment recently that if 99 percent of the population voted, we wouldn't need to be concerned about the 1 percent.

To quote columnist Eugene Robinson (Eagle, Feb. 17), if the thought of Trump in the Oval Office makes you want to curl up in the fetal position, be sure and get to the polls on March 1.
