    Who do people remember the most?

    This thread isn't about DP member specifically. Its about what DP members think about the population in general.

    On average do you think the general population knows the Presidents name? Or thier state representitives name? Both?

    Personally I think that most people don't even know the name of thier state representitive but certainly knows who the President is.

    Definitely the president. Hell, I couldn't tell you my senators' or house representative's names off the top of my head.

    it's not really debatable on which one most people know more. It's the president by far.

    Presidential Politics is like the laymen's political race, when you think about it; anyone can name a potential presidential candidate for '12...at least I hope so.

    I say presidents. Because even if a state representative did something off the wall they are still easily forgetten. For example On May 22, 1856, Brooks beat Senator Charles Sumner with his Gutta-percha wood walking cane in the Senate chamber, but these two elected officials are easily forgotten.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
