Comment:
We elect a U.S. Senator for six years.

The Framers of the Constitution wanted senators to be independent from public opinion. They thought a fairly long, six-year term would give them this protection. They also wanted longer Senate terms to balance the shorter two-year terms of the members of the House, who would more closely follow public opinion.
How did others answer?
A.  17%  B.  7%   C.  51%   D.  26%
