Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

Romney Pulls Ahead of Obama

New poll puts Romney ahead of Obama


A new survey shows GOP presidential frontrunner Mitt Romney pulling slightly ahead of President Obama, as it seems increasingly likely the two will meet in the November election.

The Fox News presidential poll had Romney ahead 46-44 percent, but the survey noted that was only the second time Romney beat out the president. The first time was November 2011, when he was also up by 2 points.

The survey also noted that the difference between the two men was well within the poll’s margin of error.

While more Republicans than Democrats (42 percent to 32 percent) and Independents (34 percent) say they are more interested in the election, party support for each candidate is dead even: 85 percent of Democrats back Obama, while 85 percent of Republicans back Romney.

Among Independents, a highly sought after demographic, Romney is preferred 43-37 percent, the survey said.

And while women prefer Obama, the survey found that the gap – 49-41 percent – is narrowing. Women voted for Obama over John McCain by 13 percentage points in 2008, the survey said.
