Did you feel that you were able to adequately convey your feelings about the issues you were asked about? One interesting finding, although it is limited in scope by the small amount of data, regards the behavior of second-term presidents who are facing big scandal investigations or impeachment threats. In the United States, presidential candidates have come to personify their parties.

Whatever decision they make the people want to know when, where, why, and how When have presidents typically been most effective in influencing the American public?
