  1. Let them in as they are now being let in. The vetting process is adequate.
  2. Don't let them in but rather establish a sanctuary in a no-fly zone in their homeland that is protected by NATO forces.
  3. Pause the process until property vetting can be established to guarantee terrorists will not be part of the influx of refugees.
  1. We should be vigilant of our own borders and use increased surveillance where terror cells exist.
  2. We need to hunt them down and expunge them, with ground troops where necessary, because they are on record desiring to attack our borders.
  3. The answer is a world alliance, including Russia, against these terrorists. Without that element, there's no point in making policy changes.
  1. The Legislature is to blame for not giving in on Gov. Wolf's plans to add a gas severance tax, and increase sales and income taxes to pay for a 10 percent increase in state spending necessary to improve education funding and other needs.
  2. The governor is to blame for adding a gas severance tax to an industry in a downturn, increasing other taxes and increasing spending beyond the state's means. There's no way the Legislature should give in to that.
  1. I would like to but to date most of the forums have not been moderated in a way that I can determine where candidates stand on issues?
  2. Of course, they are a much more valuable tool than the staged political rallies and gotcha interviews that most of the networks specialize in.
  3. No, they are much too politicized and biased on the part of the questioners, particularly the most recent one by CNBC.
  1. No. I've lost faith in the process.
  2. Yes. There are many races of interest that merit my vote.
  3. I'm voting, but only because I always have out of respect for our democratic process and the sacrifices made to preserve it.
  1. Those relations are much better in our region.
  2. Those relations match the significant unease felt elsewhere.
  3. Those relations are even worse than elsewhere.
  1. None. I don't believe his views influence the way most Americans live their lives, politically, morally or otherwise.
  2. It was significant. The pope reset our moral guides that are supposed to be what this country is all about.
  3. Only time will measure whether his impact had significant social or political impact.
  1. Hillary Clinton
  2. Bernie Sanders
  3. Donald Trump
  4. Carly Fiorina
  5. Marco Rubio
  6. Jeb Bush
  7. Ben Carson
  8. Someone else
  1. No, it's nothing more than a Republican overreach designed to sabotage her presidential campaign.
  2. Yes, her explanations to date are very suspicious and meant to cover up for very poor judgment at the least and possibly a criminal offense.
  1. It's a political gimmick that Gov. Wolf is correct to resist.
  2. It is the practical way to keep schools and others from suffering at the hands of the budget stalemate.
  1. Despite the e-mail missteps and uninspiring campaign so far, she remains the heavy favorite to win the nomination.
  2. The deep problems she has caused herself with misuse of her e-mail and other missteps are starting to drag her campaign down and she better get it turned around soon or call off her candidacy.
  3. Democrats made a big mistake putting all their eggs in the Hillary basket and they better act now to get a viable replacement or two if they want to maintain the presidency.
  1. Gov. Wolf, he was handed an on-time budget that included agreement on the majority of the line items, vetoed it in a matter of hours, and won't compromise on any of the stalemated issues.
  2. The Legislature, it is to inflexible on its main initiatives, pension reform, liquor store privatization and control of state spending.
  3. Both sides are too political and uncompromising on the items of state government that are holding up the budget.
  1. Yes, the increased education funding is needed and the pension system must be changed before pension underfunding bankrupts the state.
  2. It may be the way to solve the budget deadlock, but neither is necessary.
  3. The only thing need is the education funding increase.
  4. The only thing needed is the pension plan changes.
  1. All of it that I can possibly get to.
  2. Some key games plus the championship game.
  3. The championship game only.
  4. I don't plan to go to the series at all.
  1. This is a different era, when correct weaponry matters more than human soldiers, so I am OK with it.
  2. I am always OK with defense cutbacks, but they need to be done judiciously and the military should be prepared to expand its numbers quickly should the need arise.
  3. This is foolish action given the number of venues around the world we are currently involved in and the potential for much greater involvement. It puts our existing military at unnecessary risk.
  1. It's too fast given the twists and turns, hills and valleys that dominate the state.
  2. The three sections of the state chosen, one on Interstate 80 and one on the Turnpike, are the only ones where it can work.
  3. There are other areas of the state where a 70 mph speed limit can be maintained safety.
  1. The person who did the killing was going to do it somewhere so San Francisco's sanctuary status is not the key factor.
  2. Local law enforcement should at least be empowered in sanctuary cities to hand illegal immigrants over to federal authorities.
  3. There should be no such thing as sanctuary cities and anyone deported five times should not be in this country. It's a total system failure.
  1. It beats the alternative of war while putting in place ways to thwart Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons.
  2. It's a start to monitoring Iran but there aren't enough measures in place to assure the pursuit of nuclear weaponry really is being stunted.
  3. It's a horrible deal. Economic sanctions are lifted, no hostages are released, Israel is placed in clear jeopardy and inspections only with Iran's approval aren't inspections at all.
  1. Yes. She is clearly the best suit Democrat to win the White House.
  2. No. There are so many questions surrounding her that the party would be well-served to give equal attention to other presidential hopefuls.
  1. Yes. The economic and government principles of this country can overcome all human shortcomings.
  2. No. There's too much government baggage dragging down our economic independence to make the unique American way of life as possible today as it was 10 years ago.
