Gallup: Top 11 Questions the People Would Ask

The well anticipated debate is tonight. Often the debates focus on questions that we the people are not asking. I find most of these questions intriguing and on point. A couple do not belong in a federal debate but on the state stage, for instance education is not a question for the President. The low confidence goes away with accomplishment. I am more concerned with Iran, the military and the Russo-Chinese axis. Gallup had this take on the questions the people would like asked.

If the American people were running the Republican debate Thursday night, here are the questions they would ask the candidates — based on our latest assessment of what the people say are the most important problems facing the country today.

No gotcha questions or efforts to stump the candidates or push them off their talking points, just sincere questions from the people to help them understand how these individuals who want to take over as the people’s chief executive would handle the issues the people deem most important.

First question: How do you propose to fix the U.S. economy?

Second question: How do you propose to deal with the people’s record-low confidence in Congress and the elected representatives they send to Washington?

Third question: What do you propose to do about race relations in this country?

Fourth question: What do you propose to do about immigration and individuals living in this country illegally?

Fifth question: What do you propose to do about jobs?

Sixth question: How do you propose to deal with declining moral, family and ethical values in this country?

Seventh question: How do you propose to deal with the federal budget deficit?

Eighth question: What do you propose to do about poverty?

Ninth question: How do you propose to deal with crime and violence?

Tenth question: How do you propose to improve the education our children receive?

Eleventh question: How do you propose to make healthcare more accessible and affordable?

Here is the Washington Examiner analysis on the debate. Personally, I believe the debate is important but is one moment in many. I am not even sure it will make or break any campaigns barring a I can’t remember my 3 point plan moment. It will be the first big moment for all of the candidates as the ratings are likely to be above normal. I hope it is a moment where real issues are raised. These can be a waste of time or moments of public enlightenment. Which direction will the moderators take us?

  1. I would like to know in what regard they hold the Constitution as it applies to the ever expanding powers of the Executive branch.
    I’ve never really heard Trump refer to the Constitution. I’d be interested to know if his ego would allow him to be guided by the restraints of such a document. I know the guy in there right now doesn’t .
