THE NATIONAL POLITICAL AWARENESS TEST (NPAT)

When hiring a person for any position it is always  more  difficult  
to determine how a potential employee (candidate) might perform 
if  they  have never had the position before.  So we do what you 
would do.  We check their resumes, references, backgrounds, 
and then interview them with a series  of "no wiggle room" 
questions on the issues they will most likely have to deal
with if you choose to hire them for the job.  We  call  our  
interview  the National Political Awareness Test.  All of this 
information  and  more  is available through our 
Voter's Research Hotline.

"It's ... about what I observed of the state of electoral politics in general — the slow corruption, the role of money, name recognition, and negative ads.”
