1. Earlier this year during his presidential campaign, Donald Trump gave a speech incorporating the lyrics of the late Al Wilson's late 1960s story song r&b and pop hit, "The Snake" as an analogy for the ISIS terrorist group. Regardless of your feelings about Trump as a presidential contender, do you recall having heard this speech?
2. Before Trump gave that speech, had you heard the Al Wilson song in question?
Yes, I'd heard the song before Trump's speech.
I'd only first heard the song in conjunction with Trump's speech.
I've heard the speech, but not the song.
I've neither heard the speech nor the song.
3. Do you believe the moral of "The Snake" is an apt analogy for ISIS, especially in regards to how members of the group may well already be in North America due to current U.S. and Canadian immigration policy?
Yes, some people will "bite" regardless how well you treat them.
No, that's a ridiculous comparison (and I may say why I believe that to be the case in a comment).
Unsure, but I like that song (or at least one aspect of the Wilson's recording).
Unsure, and I'm not fond of the song, either.
4. No matter what you feel about the Trump, Wilson, the song and the analogy it was used to draw, are you at all surprised that a semi-obscure song such as this would be used to illustrate a foreign policy point by a major party presidential candidate?
Yes, that is, at best, curious.
No, appropriate parallels are where you find them;"The Snake" works to make the intended point.
No opinion or unsure
