Revelations Through Polling

Updated: Oct 6, 2023

Let’s get some answers in an attempt to see what is upsetting the average voter. Inflation is bad, but not horrible, crime is bad, but not out of control, gas prices are too high but lower than a year ago; now inflation is receding by over half. We lead the European countries by cutting back on the threat of inflation. The burden of leading the free world is our calling, both militarily and economically. What will happen if we abandon this honorable task which we assumed more than 80 years ago? Let us look at more polling responses to get a clearer picture of what the American voter is thinking.

What has happened to us in America? We seem divided more than ever. Although we are experiencing good economic success, especially in comparison to virtually all other societies. Employment is at an all-time high. We have over 5,000,000 jobs going begging on a regular basis. We are fat, but we seem unhappy. What gives? Why the unrest? Plato, some 2300 years ago, saw it and suggested democracies would pass into despotism. So, it has to be something in our nature that makes us vulnerable to perceptions that don’t even exist, except maybe in our troubled minds.


It may be good to do more and different kinds of polling to get a handle on what the average voter is thinking. It may assist us in defining and determining mainstream thought and just what our core values are in America. So, let’s ask the voter a new and different kind of question about their sentiment and perception of the American political scene:


1. Is love of flag, love of country, the U.S. Constitution, and patriotism no longer an ideal sought after in our country?

2. Is there enough scientific proof to convince the average American that global warming and climate change are caused by man?

3. In your eyes, do you still see the U.S. as a proper and qualified country to lead the free world?

4. Is the U.S. still upward mobile or trending downward economically?

5. Is law and order in America so much at risk that many people would accept an autocrat?

6. Do you still believe in American exceptionalism?

7. Do you feel modern science is good or bad for the United States?

8. Do you feel that Fox News is “fair and balanced”?

9. Do you feel good about our political leaders?

10. Do you believe Russia or Hungary has a better political system than the U.S.?

11. Would you ever consider moving to Russia or Hungary to escape the mayhem in the U.S.?

12. Is owning a gun for safety, a top priority in your life?

13. Is truth still relevant in American politics?

14. Is truth just another political opinion?

15. Do you believe the presidential election of 2020 was filled with fraudulent outcomes?

16. Did President Joe Biden win the 2020 election fairly and honestly?

17. Is it time to disengage with many of our established institutions because of alleged corruption?

18. Would ex-President Donald Trump be an honest and qualified leader in the election of 2024?

19. Does President Joe Biden have the threat of unknown crimes soon to be revealed?

20. Is disinformation and flim-flam just part of politics in the U.S.?

21. Every past president since Herbert Hoover has had a presidential library, except Donald Trump. Does he qualify for one?

22. Is it fair to ruin the reputation of someone in public life by disinformation and innuendo, without evidence or facts?


Let’s get some answers for the above in an attempt to see what is upsetting the average voter. Inflation is bad, but not horrible, crime is bad, but not out of control, gas prices are too high but lower than a year ago; now inflation is receding by over half. We lead the European countries by cutting back on the threat of inflation. The burden of leading the free world is our calling, both militarily and economically. What will happen if we abandon this honorable task which we assumed more than 80 years ago? Let us look at more polling responses to get a clearer picture of what the American voter is thinking.


God bless America, the U.S. Constitution and our flag. Also, study the history of our Founding Fathers and the need to remain a country of laws and not of men.
