1* How closely have you followed news reports about President Obama’s latest State of the Union speech?


2* Do you agree or disagree with the following statement - "After five years of grit and determined effort, the United States is better-positioned for the 21st century than any other nation on Earth”?


3* Do you favor or oppose raising the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour?


4* Will raising the hourly minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 help or hurt the economy? Or will it have no impact on the economy?


5* Most states provide at least 26 weeks in unemployment benefits. Is that enough government help for the unemployed, or do you favor adding up to 47 weeks more in federal benefits for the long-term unemployed?
