Although he's only been in the United States since 2013, Jose Goncalves is fully interested in Tuesday's presidential election results, according to an interview he did with 20 Minutes.

"I will follow the elections," Goncalves said according to Google Translate. "This is an important moment for the United States. My home is in Switzerland, but it is important to know how this country works, what people think."

This year's contentious presidential election has found a way to permeate all facets of daily life. It seems that every American has an opinion on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump. With this in mind, it isn't surprising that the New England Revolution players have been talking about who will replace Barack Obama.

"I told them, 'If Trump is President, what will you do?' And they replied, laughing: 'I am leaving the country' or 'I'm going to Canada' ... We made jokes like that," Goncalves said according to Google Translate.

The election looked all over a few weeks ago but things changed recently, as polls have tightened. Goncalves, like many Americans, isn't going to make a prediction. Instead, he will wait until the results start rolling in on Tuesday.

"Trump got used to these debates and he regained some ground," Goncalves said according to Google Translate. "There they are almost equal, and I do not know ... I do not know who will win."
