Candidates constantly do not answer the questions asked, but rather turn the question so that the answer is something they wanted to say.
Research shows that skillful politicians can do this in such a way that the viewers forget the questions and if the moderator tries to follow up they are perceived as bullying the candidate.
Research also shows an easy solution. Viewers quickly identify if the candidate is answering the question if the question continues to be posted on the screen during the answer.
If the networks post the question we will get a more informative debate that will help us to make better decisions about the candidates.
Please sign this and pass it on.
