Dr. James Zogby
The first question was about the 2016 presidential election and Dr. Zogby said it is the "Most unusual year of politics I have ever seen."
The 2nd question asked was 'How do the national election affects local races?'
The last question was about refugees and immigration and the unsettled nature of the Middle East. Dr. Zogby said that the Refugee situation literally keeps him up at night. He said there is a need for an international summit on refugees. 20 years from now there will still be a million refugees in Lebanon.
Regarding the unsettled nature of the Middle East, Zogby said "There is no solution in the Middle East that doesn't involve Saudi Arabia and Iran."
