The Missing Issues in the Presidential Campaign

Hosted by

Image-for-WWLA.jpgIf you're frustrated by the limited number of issues in this year's presidential campaign, you are not alone. For the first time since the election of 1988, the issue of climate change was not raised in any of this year's presidential or vice presidential debates. Do voters know what either candidate wants to do about climate change, Mexico's drug wars, the Eurozone or gun control? Are increasingly polarized voters making their choices on party lines, without knowing where their own candidates really stand?
