Campaign '68

Many see similarities between the 2016 presidential election campaign and one almost half a century earlier. The 1968 presidential campaign was one of the most dramatic and significant contests for the White House in the 20th century. It was a close, bitterly-fought campaign in a raucous, bloody year. Ultimately, the Democratic Party lost its decades-long grip on national power, making way for the rise of Republican conservatism that profoundly reshaped American public policy for the next 40 years.

Reassess poverty levels

From: John K., South St. Paul, MN

The current poverty levels are completely unrealistic. Most organizations now consider poverty as some multiple (125 percent, 150 percent, etc.) of the poverty income levels now determined on an annual basis. Problem is, nobody uses the same multiple. And keeping the actual definition of poverty at the current unrealistic income levels completely misstates what the real rate of poverty is in this country. We can't solve a problem we don't understand, and we don't understand what the real dimension of the problem is.
