Politicians are the people who help to run a particular country. They are the people we see shouting at each other when we watch the news. Anyone can be a politician, but it seems that the majority of them are old, white men. Politicians have opinions on absolutely everything. These opinions mean that politicians are in different groups with other politicians who share similar opinions as they do. Every few years one of these groups are voted by the population to run the country. They sometimes do a good job of it, but most of the time they are all pretty bad.
