Question description

I need 1, 2, and 3 answered with at least 150 words each.

1. Choose ONE of the following questions to answer in the Discussion Board:

  1. Analyze Figure 10.1, "Partisanship in America." What factors do you believe had led to increase in the number of people who identify as "Independent," as opposed to Democrat or Republican?
  2. The publication of poll results in the days before an election is often criticized because some say that voters are influenced to vote for the "leader" in the poll—the so-called 'bandwagon effect'. Do you think that there is any merit to this criticism?
  3. "Revolving door" laws prohibit public officials from lobbying activities for one year after they leave office. What do you view as some potential political pros or cons of public officials making this transition?

2. Choose ONE of the following questions to answer in the Discussion Board:

  1. Review the results listed in Figure 13.7, "Voter Turnout Around the World." Why do you believe the U.S. has such a low voter turnout, compared to the other countries listed? Do you believe the U.S. should implement any changes to its system of voting in order to expand turnout?
  2. Should voting be restricted to those with a college education? Why or why not?
  3. Do you think college students' participation (the youth vote) made a difference in the election outcome in 2012? Do you believe this segment of the population will/can be influential in future elections? Explain.

3. Choose ONE of the following questions to answer in the Discussion Board:

  1. Do you believe progressive taxes, regressive taxes, or flat taxes (or a combination of all three) are most "fair." Explain you answer.
  2. Looking at the budget pie charts in Figure 15.3, what areas would you identify for increasing revenue and decreasing spending? Explain your answer.
  3. Figure 16.1 shows "Failing to Win Over the Public in Afghanistan." How important do you believe it is for public opinion to support foreign policy decisions? Explain.
Thanks You
