Listen to Me

Listen To Me is a new project that PBS NewsHour is launching in conjunction with the 2012 presidential election. We are asking voters in every state three simple questions about the direction of the country and how they feel about the political process: 1) What is the most important issue to you during this election? 2) Are you hopeful about the future? If so, why? If not, why not? 3) Do you think the political system is broken? If so, how would you fix it?

  

Visit the PBS NewsHour Map Center to create your own 2012 prediction map, see past elections' results, and peruse a variety of additional statistics and facts by state.
