When asking my friends and the stranger to do the survey, they all accepted to do it and I really was not surprised by that. Now there was one of my friends that questioned some of the survey questions, but I just told them that our class brought up what they thought were important to ask. College is also a great time to really show who you are as a person and so I believe that most people would want to take the survey unless if they were in a rush or too busy.

The first day of class Professor Frank asserted that people in the United States fear public speaking more than the Islamic State, President Obama, or death. This was said jokingly, but over the course of the next ten weeks, I had never been in a classroom with so many nervous people, myself included....

However, one presidential candidate does not fall into this particular category.... [tags: Barack Obama, President of the United States]
