8 years after hope and change, voters are angry, anxious
ARVADA, Colorado - Eight years ago, Barbara Conley was one of the millions of Americans swept up in Barack Obama's promises of hope and change when he accepted the Democratic nomination at a packed stadium a few miles from her home in the Denver suburbs.
But those optimistic days are almost unrecognizable to Conley now.
With Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton preparing for their own nominating conventions, Conley is filled with so much frustration at the candidates that she can't even imagine voting in November.
The same sense of anger and anxiety runs deep among voters across the country.
At the conventions, Trump and Clinton will each try to paint a rosy picture of life under their leadership. But it seems unlikely either can quickly shake Americans out of their bad mood.
