Survey: 2015 State of the Union

In his sixth State of the Union address on Tuesday, January 20, President Obama outlined new policies aimed at growing the American economy and leading the world with our foreign policy. Among his new economic proposals are universal affordable child care, paid sick leave for all workers, a raise in the minimum wage, increasing the Capital Gains tax for the wealthiest Americans, and making community college free, which Obama advocated for by citing how sending GI’s to college after World War II expanded the American workforce and increased its productivity. Regarding foreign policy, Obama asked Congress for an authorization for military actions against ISIS and an end to the Cuban embargo, and advocated for prohibiting torture as a means of war.

What do you think of the policies Obama outlined in his State of the Union address? The Journal would like to hear the opinions of Guilderland students. Complete the survey questions below to make your voice heard. All responses are anonymous.

Survey results: do you think the Red Sea has sexism within it?

The Journal concludes all polls after one hundred responses have been submitted. We do this in order to obtain a sample of data that is representative of the school population in a period that is fixed rather than arbitrary.

In this survey, we asked students to respond to our controversial article on accusations of sexism in the Red Sea by asking “do you think the Red Sea has sexism within it?” In the final data, 41 percent of people surveyed answered “yes” while 59 percent answered “no,” showing that the opinion on this issue throughout the school is split.

It should be noted that the votes were at an even split of 50 percent “yes” and 50 percent “no” before a rapid influx of votes brought the survey to a close following the Red Sea’s request of their twitter followers to vote “no.”

Thank you for your participation in this survey.
