10 Fun Political Questions That Won’t Cause an Argument

With the holidays around the corner, politics are sure to be brought up.

You can’t choose your family, but with these questions, you can at least choose what’s talked about. These ten questions with answers are sure to spark a debate, but in a good way.

Read the questions aloud, and then guess what the other person would answer. If it moves into argument territory, just move onto the next question!

1. All have a biased agenda toward one side or the other. 2. All are just focused on the ratings. 3. They’re a logical way to stay updated. 4. I trust the major outlet that leans toward my views.

1. Million-dollar campaign efforts. 2. Only having two viable choices. 3. The Electoral College. 4. Only being able to vote on a Tuesday (in many places.)

1. Treasury. 2. Health and Human Services. 3. Education. 4. Homeland Security.

1. Say they want to move to Canada. 2. Protest the results in the streets. 3. Call the whole thing rigged. 4. Not have a care or worry in the world.
