Patricia,

In addition to the simple "yes/no" poll question, add context and be more constructive by asking "how" that answer is justified by the
respondents knowledge of the issue at hand. This would challenge us all to adopt a more holistic understanding of the implications. Of course this would require some critical thinking, which is sorely lacking in the discourse today.

It would also be interesting to index the responses by party.

Franke

1. IN a perfect world your post is dead on, however America now exists in 'bizzaro' world of 'Fake News' and a President who covers his gaff's by saying, "Well that is what I heard" instead of showing any 'critical thinking' you mention.

2. In this world Americans believe in Angels and UFO's more than they know about the Constitutional workings of their government. Politicians play the voters (look at how the Russians 'played' social media in the 2016 election) and that is how the powerful 'control' this democracy/republic.

3. "add context and be more constructive by asking "how" that answer is justified by the respondents knowledge of the issue at hand." Franke- you might read D Robb's postings usually having supporting citations and compare it with those whose opinions never have such justifications. BTW - welcome to Patricia's forum.

4. "It would also be interesting to index the responses by party" No, not really. If anything the actions of either party fly in the face of their knowledge, reality and their defined mission statements.
