Isn't it rather last minute to do that? Unless it was assigned today.

Also, isn't the poll suppoused to be in person (as far as school assignments go)?

polls should not be done in person as they are subject to bias because the person being polled might change their answers with someone watching. and yes, you should probably be american. sorry

 C. Representative Democracy  

2. What is your approval rating of our current system?

I agree, although it isn't too bad here and once the poll is done, the OP can just ask it to be deleted. The poll is due tomorrow anyways and after that the thread can be removed.

I think you need to be from the US, also, I think having question 5 be only those in the US is narrowing it down too much. I don't see anything wrong with getting non-US answers for number 5 and giving those to your teacher along with the US ones.

4. I would amend the Constitution to get rid of term limits. I would also change the  Supreme Court so they serve an unlimited amount of ten-year terms.

5. I think that they need to focus more on innovation, and less on graphics.
