USConstitution.net 1998 Survey Results


This site has conducted an unscientific survey on various issues since July of 1998. The results, while interesting in most cases, are to be taken with a grain of salt - the results can easily be skewed by an individual or group of individuals; the sample is, by nature, not representative (because it consists only of Web users who visit my site and bother to view the survey page and submit an opinion).

This page includes results from 1998. For results from other years, please go to the Main Results Page.

Question 6, December 1998 - Given the religious basis for Christmas, some have suggested that having December 25 be a federal holiday may be a violation of the first amendment. What is your opinion?

It is a violation, but there's little point in changing it 13225.14
Leave it alone 34265.14

Question 5, November 1998 - Recent elections in the United States reflect a low percentage of registered voters actually voting, and an even lower percentage of all eligible voters actually voting. Should the Constitution be amended to allow the implementation of compulsory voting?

Question 4, October 1998 - The Framers had a specific meaning to "high crimes and misdemeanors" - an action that directly affects the strength of the nation. But the Constitution allows the phrase to be interpreted any way the current congress wishes. Should we rely on the Framers' meaning, or interpret it any way we wish?
